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?')
