The Major and the Minor

Billy Wilder's first American directorial effort (1942) stars Ginger Rogers as a broke New York career woman who poses as a 12-year-old to get a half-fare train ride home to Iowa. The Wilder ironies and favorite themes—sexual deception, innuendo, the power of words to slice up and serve a character—are all present in abundance. Ray Milland is properly straight as the officer who tries to take care of Ginger as she's falling in love with him.
