Slightly Dangerous is a 1943 American romantic comedy film starring Lana Turner and Robert Young. A bored young woman in a dead-end job runs away to New York City and ends up impersonating the long-lost daughter of a millionaire. The film was directed by Wesley Ruggles and written by Charles Lederer and George Oppenheimer from a story by Ian McLellan Hunter and Aileen Hamilton. According to Turner Classic Movies film historian Robert Osborne, one sequence early in the film—in which Lana Turner's character does her job at the soda fountain while blindfolded—was actually directed by an uncredited Buster Keaton.
