Bachelor Mother (Kanin, 1939): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 3.30pm

This film, which also screens on April 7th and 18th, is part of the Ginger Rogers season at BFI Southbank. Full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
Two of Hollywood’s smarmier talents, director Garson Kanin and screenwriter Norman Krasna, teamed up for this rib-nudging 1939 screwball comedy, featuring Ginger Rogers as a department-store clerk who takes in an abandoned baby and prompts a lot of gossip around the lingerie counter. David Niven, the boss’s son, is drafted as the suspected father; many unpleasant complications follow.
