More than 70,000 illegitimate children will be born in Great Britain this year. The first Parliamentary Act on the subject was passed in 1576; there have been adjustments since then but not many. Parliament appointed a Committee three years ago to bring about changes in the law. The House of Commons has still not found time to consider the Committee's recommendations. Meanwhile the attitude of society, as well as the law, can make the life of an illegitimate one of stigma and distress. They are the men and women who feel themselves to be alone, rejected: punished through no fault of their own.
A light-hearted look at labour relations.
Starring Robert Cummings, Jean Arthur
with Charles Coburn and Spring Byington
The owner of a department store takes a vengeful hand in labour relations by getting a job in his own shoe department, but he reckons without one idealistic young saleslady.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
