Susan arrives at New York City's Grand Central Terminal and attempts to buy a fare from a New York Central Railroad ticket clerk. When she eventually has a ticket and is on the train, the exterior view is of a Pennsylvania Railroad train pulled by streamlined steam locomotive. That train would have departed from New York's Pennsylvania Station. See more »
This Billy Wilder film stars Ginger Rogers as a grown thirty year old woman passing herself off as a twelve year old kid, PLEASE!! The storyline is unbelievable BUT....made very funny and watchable by its stars.
Susan is a woman who is fed up with New York. She left her little hometown to find happiness in the big city, only to find it filled with disappointment. So she decides to head back home on the train. When she gets there she finds that she is short funds. Not knowing what to do she gets a hairbrained idea that she could simply pass herself off as a kid to pay less!! When the conductor on the train gets wise, she runs and hides in the compartment of Ray Milland. Ginger makes little SuSu(Susan) so cute and delightful and Milland is funny and sweet as the(obviously blind) military school teacher.
It sounds stupid but it isn't really. Give it a chance and you'll love it. ENJOY!!
