Wellman knew to keep this story short -- it runs just 73 minutes -- and speedy. And yet he understands how to conduct it so that it's more than just breakneck comedy. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- The perpetual digs against journalists are especially amusing, as when someone cracks that even "the hand of God reaching down into the mire couldn't elevate one of them to the depths of degradation!" Full Review

Rating: A -- The film has been perceived as a satire on yellow journalism due to Hect'd experience. There's a key line in which a NY journalst is told: A Newspaperman? The hand of God reaching down into the mire couldn't elevate one of them to the depth of degradation Full Review

Product Description:

In this classic screwball comedy, Carole Lombard plays Hazel Flagg, a small-town girl who pretends to be dying from radium poisoning so she can win a free trip to New York City. Fredric March plays Wally Cook, the big-city newspaper reporter who sets up the plan by breaking the story and then complicates matters when he falls for Hazel. The result is a marvelous satire, directed by William Wellman and featuring terrific performances from the two leads as well as Charles Winninger and Walter Connolly. Carole Lombard offers up an ironic monologue about the beauty of dying in what was to be one of her last films prior to her real-life ending in a plane crash.

Plot Synopsis:

NOTHING SACRED is a lively comedy about a hotshot reporter who exploits the predicted death of a woman to make headlines, who in turn exploits her nonexistent illness to get a free trip to New York.
