The Roth family lead a quiet life in a small village in the German Alps during the early 1930s. When the Nazis come to power, the family is divided and Martin Brietner, a family friend is caught up in the turmoil.
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

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 »
This one just grows on you. It tickles. Everyone wins.
This movie has certainly "grown" on me. There are very few weak parts in it. Even the extras are outstanding. There is both social and moral content. Lana Turner's character grows up and my, what a thinker she is. And so is the persistent Robert Young. Everyone wins. This is what I consider a feel good movie. I also loved both the band music and the opera scene music. If you like Walter Brennan and Dame Mae Witty, you'll have to love them in this movie. Alan Mowbray has a good bit part. I love seeing Eugene Palette manage something without goofing it up. Even he sparkles. And I've become a fan of Jimmy Conlin who plays the role of the bartender.
