    Warner Brothers went CHEAP on this disc, charging a premium price for nothing more than the movie itself. There's NO MENUs, no breakdown by chapters, not even the most basic functionality. And don't expect anything like the original theatrical trailer, stills, film historian commentary or any documentary material.

    The film is fantastic, but you'd do JUST AS WELL by DVR'ing it off of TCM.

    I'd recommend this film highly, but I would not recommend this disc.

      Comments about Bachelor Mother:

      This is a sweet, funny, and engaging story. The cast just does not get any better. I cant think of anyone who would not like this movie!

      This movie was remade as "bundle of Joy". The Debbie Reynolds version was produced as a musical.

            Veiwed this and it's counterpart Bundle Of Joy immediately after I got them. A few differences but still very fun to watch. Good clean movie. WB delivered it very quickly after I placed the order and the disc was a good quality.

                  Bought Bundle Of Joy and Bachelor Mother to view and compare. I enjoyed the differences in both, but respected how they stayed with the original story line so well. The movie is good clean fun for the all ages. Something you don't find much of now days.
                  The discs came in quickly after my order was placed, and they were both very good quality. I liked that too.

                      Ginger Rogers with David Niven in a comedy. What else do you need to know to know you'll enjoy this one? It is a fun movie!

                          Wonderful David Niven and Ginger Rogers movie. They are perfect together and the story gives them wonderful opportunities to show their comedic talents. It is a lovely movie and I highly recommend it to everyone who loves to laugh and has a heart!

                            The first disk came with some defects and was exchanged promptly for another. Good service. The replacement disk was of excellent quality. I will do business here again.

                              I've looked forward to watching this novie every December for a long time. It's just plain fun. No language is bleeped, the characters are ordinary people in an extraordinary situation. The problems are resolved in a practical way with a good deal of humor. Young viewers would not generally appreciate the situation, so I'd recommend this one for adults.

                                  Very good example of the type of romantic comedy of manners Hollywood used to make so often. Not absolutely top-drawer (it's not Bringing Up Baby or Philadelphia Story), but very good indeed, with Rogers and Niven at their most appealing. And the great Charles Coburn made me laugh till I cried.
