Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
THE MAJOR AND THE MINOR
Dir: Billy Wilder
Billy Wilder made his Hollywood directorial debut with this wartime farce, cowritten with frequent collaborator Charles Brackett. Ginger Rogers sparkles as a woman who masquerades as a 12-year-old girl to travel by train on a child’s fare; Ray Milland is the military man who shelters the youngster.
Dir: Garson Kanin
Seven years after his wife was lost in a shipwreck, Nick (Cary Grant) has her declared dead so that he can remarry. Unfortunately, the missing spouse (Irene Dunne) resurfaces just as Nick heads off to honeymoon with his new bride. That’s only one of the complications in this frothy romantic comedy, which earned three Oscar nominations. With Randolph Scott.
