Classic screwball comedy. When Wally Cook (Fredric March), an ambitious reporter on a sensation-seeking New York tabloid, hears of Hazel Flagg (Carole Lombard), a smalltown woman who has been diagnosed as having radium poisoning, he thinks he has happened across a great sob story. However, by the time he reaches her, the doctor has changed his diagnosis - Hazel isn't dying after all. Unaware of this latest development, Wally convinces her to return to New York with him as a special guest of his paper. She agrees and much mayhem ensues. Scripted by Ben Hecht, 'Nothing Sacred' joins Hecht's own 'The Front Page' as one of the great satires on newspaper journalism.
