In this classic screwball comedy, newspaperman Frederic March makes a national heroine of a smalltown bumpkin (Carole Lombard) diagnosed with a fatal illness...but her doctor's assessment turns out to be wrong. Wellman keeps the comic pace frantic in one of the screen's cleverest screwball comedies. With a supporting cast featuring some of Hollywood's funniest character actors, including Margaret Hamilton, Charles Winniger and Walter Connolly, NOTHING SACRED is nothing less than hysterical.
