February 1938 Films: Nothing Sacred

Today's film is an all-time favorite: Nothing Sacred. Boy, do I love a screwball comedy! And Carole Lombard! Even acting in a completely ridiculous way, she ends up looking totally glamorous. And Fredric March! He's adorable. My guess is that you've probably seen this one, but if you haven't, you seriously need to watch it this weekend. Nothing Sacred is a send-up of the sensationalist press, so desperate for new and lurid stories to print that journalists and editors don't always take the time to check up on their sources and subjects. Fredric March plays a shoot-from-the-hip journalist who travels to the wilds of Vermont to do a story on a woman who is slowly dying of radium poisoning (Carole Lombard). It's silly and wacky and often very funny.
