Tom, Dick and Harry is a 1941 comedy film directed by Garson Kanin, written by Paul Jarrico, and starring Ginger Rogers, George Murphy, Alan Marshal, Phil Silvers, and Burgess Meredith. The film was released by RKO Radio Pictures.

This role was Ginger Rogers' day job when she was awarded the Oscar as Best Actress for her 1940 performance in Kitty Foyle. It was her first film released after winning her Oscar.


Ginger Rogers plays telephone operator Janie, who has to choose among three men – Tom (Murphy), Dick (Marshal) and Harry (Meredith). The film was remade as The Girl Most Likely (1957), a musical which also proved to be the last film released by RKO.



The film was very popular, earning a profit of $234,000.[1]
