Description by OLDIES.com:
When working girl Peggy Evans of humdrum Hotchkiss Falls gets a makeover, she does more than change from prim brunette to racy blonde. She gets a whole new life, leaving behind what everyone thinks is a suicide note and resurfacing in New York City, where she passes herself off as Carole Burden, the long-lost amnesiac child of a millionaire. But Peggy's boss, accused of driving her to suicide and desperate to prove his innocence, is on her trail. For cover, he says he is Peggy's beloved hubby. Lana Turner and Robert Young circle, collide, and ultimately clinch amid the merry mix-ups of the romantic comedy Slightly Dangerous. Adding to the classic fun: an aces cast of Walter Brennan, Dame May Whitty and more!
This airy bit of MGM fluff stars Lana Turner as small-town soda clerk Peggy Evans. After telling off the self-important new drugstore manager Bob Stuart (Robert Young), Peggy, convinced that there's no future for her in her hometown, fakes her suicide and heads for the big city. After a series of dizzying comic complications, she successfully poses as the long-lost daughter of millionaire Cornelius Burden (Walter Brennan). Meanwhile, poor Bob, held responsible for Peggy's "death," comes to town determined to clear his name by exposing Peggy as an impostor. How this all works itself out is as hard to swallow as the rest of the picture, but the stars are attractive and the production values first-rate.
