Dose anybody know this movie?

*It was probably made sometime from the 1930's to late 1940"s

*It was about a woman how had found a baby boy and was pretending he was her baby.

But im not shore because i only saw the middle and end.

* There was a rich man who wanted to help here because she was a single mom and he started to love her.

* the rich mans father saw them to gether and thought the baby was his grandson that his son was keeping a secret from him. Then the grandpa tried to take the baby from the woman.

* She worked at a mall which the man might have owned but im not shure.

* At the end I think they were maried and let the grandpa beleve it was his grandson.

I think it was a comedy

    Bachelor Mother (1939)

    starring Ginger Rogers,David Niven,Charles Coburn,Frank Albertson,E.E. Clive

    IMDb synopsis:

    Polly Parrish, a clerk at Merlin's Department Store, is mistakenly presumed to be the mother of a foundling. Outraged at Polly's unmotherly conduct, David Merlin becomes determined to keep the single woman and "her" baby together.

    Here's one site where you can find copies, both original b&w and colorized:

    Here's the b&w movie trailer:

    YouTube has the colorized version of the movie, which dates back to when Ted Turner was trying to get people to watch older movies, finally convincing them that b&w movies ARE great to watch! Here's Part 1:

    The story was remade:

    Bundle of Joy (1956)

    IMDb synopsis:

    In this musical remake of "Bachelor Mother", Debbie Reynolds plays Polly Parish, an overeager clerk in a large department store; and Eddie Fisher (who was married to Debbie at this time) plays Dan Merlin, the boss' son. After getting fired from her job, she finds an adorable baby on the steps of the foundling home, and the folks inside mistake her for the mother. Dan, well-meaning, but obtuse, tries to help her out with the baby, and the buds of romance begin to appear. Meanwhile, Dan's grandfather, Merlin (Adolphe Menjou), the owner of the store, thinks he just might be a grandfather.

    Just in case you're curious, here's the movie trailer:

    NOTE: When I arrived, there were no answers. I simply took too long to type the information, meaning that, yes, I sometimes have fumble fingers.

    I am fairly sure that it is "Bachelor Mother"


    "This one stars Ginger Rogers, in the title role, David Niven, and Charles Coburn. Rogers plays a department store employee who's mistaken for the mother of an abandoned baby.

    The store is family owned and run by Coburn and his ‘playboy’ son Niven. Through a confluence of events, bachelorette Rogers ‘accepts’ the responsibility of raising the baby she names Johnnie in order to keep her job at the store.

    She is assisted in this task by inexperienced caregiver Niven, whose father later comes to believe Johnnie is his illegitimate grandchild."
