This sparkling comedy was Oscar nominated for its script in which Polly Parrish (Ginger Rogers) a clerk at Merlin's Department Store, is mistakenly presumed to be the mother of a young child who is not looked after by the hard-working mother. Outraged at Polly`s unmotherly conduct, David Merlin (David Niven) becomes determined to keep the single woman and `her` baby together in this wonderful comedy of errors. Ginger Rogers, David Niven and Charles Coburn achieve intense comic chemistry under the direction of Garson Kanin with hardly a dull moment in this stylish and breezy `department store` romance in which Ginger gives as good as she gets!
Bachelor Mother is one of those rarities, a brilliantly cast comedy where everything plot, pacing and dialogue is hilarious --DVDbeaver.com

Ginger plays Polly Parrish, temporary Christmas help at Merlin & Son's department store. Charles Coburn is J. B. Merlin and David Niven is his footloose son David. Ginger is given her pink slip along with the other Christmas help and upon leaving the store comes across an old woman leaving a small baby on the steps of an orphanage. Ginger of course picks the baby up as the door opens and from here on in everyone assumes it's hers!
When she leaves the baby there it is traced back to her former employer and Niven agrees to keep her on so she can keep her baby! Ginger gets tired of explaining how it's not her baby and since she is slowly but surely becoming the baby's mother anyway she gives in. A very funny Niven keeps stopping buy to "help" and he and Ginger have some truly nice moments together. One particular scene after an hilarious date with Niven, as Ginger talks to her baby about it, will make you fall in love with her.
Ginger Rogers was a wonderful light comedic actress and along with "Lucky Partners" with Ronald Coleman, "Fifth Avenue Girl," and her Oscar winning "Kitty Foyle," this is one of her finest films. Ginger Rogers was the sweet American girl next door. She was never prettier than in this film and simply exudes a luminous charm in every scene. This might just be her finest performance.
This is a movie that will have you laughing or smiling all the way through. Anyone who ever questions the importance of Ginger Rogers in American cinema need only be reminded of this; in the tiny annex where Anne Frank spent so much time, where every inch of space was precious and guarded, was a torn out picture from a movie magazine, of Ginger Rogers...........
