The miracle of Morgan's Creek( Visual )

11 editions published between 1943 and 2013 in English and held by 688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Flirtatious blonde Trudy Kockenlocker is disappointed that her father, gruff town constable Ed Kockenlocker, won't let her go to an army dance. She outwits him by getting nerdy Norval Jones--who's had a crush on Trudy since they were teenagers--to take her to the movies, so she can slip out to the dance. The soldiers spike the lemonade and Trudy dances with a number of GIs. During one boogie-woogie number, Trudy's energetic partner tosses her in the air, and she bangs her head on a chandelier, rendering her unconscious. When she wakes up, she discovers that she's wearing a wedding ring, and, a few weeks later, that she's pregnant. But who and where is the husband and father? Confiding only in her younger-but-wiser, wisecracking sister Emmy, she plans to get Norval to marry her. Norval is 4-F because of his extremely nervous condition, but he desires only two things in life: Trudy and to be in the army. Norval's willing to do anything to help her, but whatever Trudy asks him to do only makes things worse!
The major and the minor by Billy Wilder( Visual )

3 editions published between 1942 and 2008 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This farcical comedy was Wilder's directorial debut after years as a scriptwriter. Ginger Rogers plays a working-class girl living in New York who wants to leave the big city and return home to the Midwest. Unable to pay the full train fare she dress up as a 12 year-old and manages to get away with paying half-fare. Caught smoking on board, she takes refuge with a major en route to a military academy. The major and his cadets are unable to explain their attraction for such a young girl. The script is full of rapid-fire one liners and risque dialogue (including the memorable line 'Why don't you step out of that wet coat and into a dry martini?')
