Radio review - SGP - "Bachelor Mother" (1942) ***
A bright, skilled condensation of the classic farce, with Ann Southern very comfortable in the lead, and Fred MacMurray more believable as Charles Coburn's son than David Niven. Coburn is marvellous and he gets the best lines - "I don't care who the father is I'm the grandfather" and "that's the first true words that have been spoken in the last 48 hours".
