The Major and the Minor Photos

Movie Info

Susan Applegate (Ginger Rogers) decides to leave New York City and take a train back to Iowa, but she has only enough money for a child's ticket. She disguises herself as a young girl and, after being discovered by the train conductor, hides out in the car of Major Kirby (Ray Milland). Kirby believes she is a child and watches after her. But as Kirby's fiancée (Rita Johnson) and others grow suspicious of Susan's ruse, her cleverness is thoroughly tested.

Audience Reviews for The Major and the Minor

  • Feb 24, 2018
    This early Billy Wilder romantic comedy has Rogers and Milland denying their attraction for one another because of their imagined age difference. It's cute more than funny, but an honest cute, and for that enjoyable.

    A very funny movie and an interesting story, but you really have to suspend your disbelief when it comes to mistaking Ginger Rogers for a pre-teen girl.

    Something that could never be made today but coming from a more innocent time this is a sweet little comedy. Ginger is sly and funny as the masquerading lass, Ray Milland properly befuddled and Diana Lynn great as the wised up sister. All done with a light touch by Wilder.
