He’s an unscrupulous newspaperman eager to exploit the story of a youngwoman’s death by radium poisoning. She knows she’s not really dyingbut can’t pass up a free trip to New York with all the trimmings. So beginsWilliam Wellman’s wonderful black comedy NOTHING SACRED, starringFredric March and Carole Lombard.
Legendary screenwriter Ben Hecht’s sharply satirical screenplay, depictingthe morbid nature of the scandal-hungry public, is more relevant than ever -with such wonderful comic lines as. “Doctor, I want to be the worst… we go topress in fifteen minutes!”
Wellman keeps comic pace frantic in one of the screen’s cleverest screwballcomedies. With a supporting cast featuring some of Hollywood’s funniestactors, including Margaret Hamilton, Charles Winninnger and Walter Connolly,NOTHING SACRED is nothing less than hysterical.
