A sparkling and effervescing piece of farce-comedy.
Pretty irresistible, nevertheless, with Rogers doing a beautiful job of dovetailing sexual provocation and demure innocence.
Miss Rogers and Mr. Milland have played it with spirit and taste. Never once does either permit the suggestion of a leer to creep in.
The Wilder ironies and favorite themes--sexual deception, innuendo, the power of words to slice up and serve a character -- are all present in abundance.
The effervescent farce proved to be a classic comedy.
If anybody could manage a fizzy romantic comedy of sexual repression in 1942, it was Billy Wilder, already with three screenwriting Oscar nominations under his belt and making his American directorial debut, with The Major and the Minor.
Early Billy Wilder comedy starring Ginger Rogers, Ray Milland.
Wilder's first film isn't his best, but it's an auspicious debut.
The Major and the Minor sails along breezily from its very first scenes until its romantic ending.
A fine entertainment and proof that Billy Wilder had what it took from the very start of his career.
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.
