Storyline

Peggy is 21 and bored. She has just been awarded a certificate for starting work on time for 1000 days. She decides that she needs a change so she leaves a note, which is taken to be suicidal, and heads for New York where she gets a make over. A new outfit, a new look and an freak accident gets her in the paper as a amnesia victim, just because she does not want to be Peggy Evans any more. The paper thinks she may be an heiress so she searches for a few clues from back issues of the paper and finds that Carol Burden was never found. Cornelius Burden, however, has sent dozens of frauds to jail already and she must trick him and Baba to keep out of jail. Next, she must stop her old manager, Bob Stuart, from spilling the beans about her. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Goofs

When Peggy visits the library's newspaper archive, she takes down a bound volume of the New York Star marked July 1924 on the spine from a shelf of volumes labeled with the months of 1924. In the next closeup the volume is marked July 1924 on the spine and July 1925 on the front cover (visible simultaneously). A montage of her subsequent searches continues with the August and September 1925 volumes and beyond. See more »

Spoted A Goof.
11 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now I know production wasn't what it is today but...Towards the end of this film Robert Young's character facing Lana Turner's character are wiping (supposed) grease from each others faces. When you watch them wiping you will notice NO grease on the handkerchiefs.This is rather amusing because there seems to be quite a smudge on both.

The movie was intriguing throughout and I would watch this film again. I would watch this film again and again just for the goofs. Lana Turner, to me was a whining bit of a minx in her dramatic performances. Comedy should have been her forte'. At least she wouldn't be so melodramatic in her roles. Someone out there in "Movie Land" thought to just look at her would be enough and camouflage the rest with sappy dialog.
