Nothing Sacred is the story of Hazel Flag, a small town girl from Warsaw, Vermont, who goes along for the ride when a New York reporter who believes she has but a few weeks to live decides to make a human interest story out of her by bringing her to New York on a sort of faux make a wish foundation lark. Hilarity ensues.
Basically, the cover art drew me in, and the rest was just good enough to keep me watching to see how this screwball comedy–not what I was expecting from that cover–plays out. As screwball comedies go, it’s not bad. A bit by the numbers, but excellent pacing, better than average dialogue, some saucy humor, and great views of 1930’s New York and Carole Lombard make up for it.
