Movie Reviews

Combustible Celluloid - 10/10 by Jeffrey M. Anderson 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.
Atlantic City Weekly - 10/10 by Lori Hoffman All time classic satire about media-generated fame
Ozus' World Movie Reviews - 8/10 by Dennis Schwartz Sophisticated, well-oiled 1930s screwball comedy.
EmanuelLevy.Com - 6/10 by Emanuel Levy 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
User Review - 10/10 by Lanny G Carole's showcase. A good script that she elevates with one of the best comedic performances in film
User Review - 8/10 by Carmela " This held my attention -- a distinct story about a dying girl who's not really dying, given the royal treatment by a New York paper. The newspaperman loves her, she gets guilty about being lavishly treated. A good comedy with a different and worthwhile theme: be warned of the plasticity of the city lights; there is "nothing sacred" in New York.
User Review - 8/10 by Doctor S 'Nothing Sacred' Still On-Target 70 Years Later Breezy but pointed satire of hypocrisy and the press, as Carole Lombard (there's something sexy about a funny woman) as Hazel Flagg fakes an incurable illness to be the toast of New York while Fredric March and his newspaper milk her sob story for every column inch they can. Just as relevant today as in 1937; there's a TV commercial where for $20 you can buy a gold coin with silver "recovered from safes below Ground Zero"-molded twin towers that pop out and can be mounted in a groove in the coin so the towers can "soar as a shining testament" to blah blah. That'll show those extremists where they're wrong, that'll help the families lost. No, it'll only help the people who buy it feel better about themselves and think, "Look how much I care, I have a gold & silver coin to prove it." Just like the people out on the town standing and applauding Miss Flagg for her bravery as the emcee introduces her as a special guest while the flashbulbs pop to capture her plight. The Wicked Witch of the West has a funny bit as a general store owner too! Best line comes from the newspaper editor (amusingly named Oliver Stone): "Is she still alive?? Don't spare my feelings, we go to press in 15 minutes!"

User Review - 6/10 by Z P Not a great film and doesnt really exist in an adequate version but I love Carole Lombard and therefore I can't rate this any less than 3 stars.
User Review - 4/10 by James H ** (out of four) Carole Lombarde is a woman who believes she is dying. March is a New York City reporter who brings her to New York where she becomes the brave toast of the town. Too uncomfortable to be funny at times and wildly uneven. For now I am leaving my review at 2 stars, however, I was just noticing that the running time is listed at 1 hr and 40 minutes. The rented version I watched ran only 75 minutes. The cut out segments may have filled in some of the gaping holes that I feel are missing. My review could change.
User Review - 2/10 by Diana S [b]Nothing Sacred[/b] = complete waste of time. It's a screwball comedy, and, while that is not my favorite genre, I have enjoyed it in the past. But this was just tedious in the extreme. Fredric March ("The Iceman Cometh") stars as a shamed reporter trying to redeem himself. So he decides to show a dying girl, Carole Lombard ("To Be or Not to Be"), New York City. Only she's not really dying. She just wants a free trip. Then they fall for each other. Then he finds out it's a hoax. Hilarity is supposed to ensue. There were a couple of times I thought about laughing, but, by then, I was so bored it was just too much trouble. Also, the transfer was terrible. Sometimes there were scratches and the entire thing was dirty. Every once in awhile it seemed to be ghosting, where the images blurred up. It made me crazy, and really appreciative of good transfers. [b] Let's Scare Jessica to Death[/b] turned out to be a delightful surprise. An atmospheric horror film that focuses on the fraying mind of Jessica, recently released from the mental hospital where she was sent for hearing voices and seeing things that weren't there. So when she, her husband, and their close friend (how close I sometimes wondered) move out to a farm and meet a bunch of strangely bandaged townsfolk and an engaging redhead, no one believes the things she tells them about how wrong everything is. Excellent music.
