Actress Diana Lynn appeared in the original film, The Major and the Minor, as Lucy, the science-obsessed teenage sister of Pamela (Ginger Roger's on-screen nemesis). Thirteen years later, Diana Lynn starred in that film's remake, You're Never Too Young, this time as Nancy Collins (a female version of the role originally played by Ray Milland). See more »

Role-reversal remake of 1942's "The Major and the Minor" has Jerry Lewis stepping into the part originally played by Ginger Rogers, but unfortunately this anemic outing is missing a lot more than just Ginger. Lewis attempts to pass for a child when boarding a train; he's successful, but the deception leads to a string of comic and romantic confusions. Sidney Sheldon adapted the screenplay, tossing in musical moments for Dean Martin (playing yet another in his stable of second-bananas) and a jewel-robbery subplot (which is dire). Diana Lynn, who played the wily teenager in the original film, plays Lewis' love-interest here. She's cute; Jerry isn't. *1/2 from ****
