  • In this classic screwball comedy, Carole Lombard plays Hazel Flagg, a small-town girl who pretends to be dying from radium poisoning so she can win a free trip to New York City. Fredric March plays Wally Cook, the big-city newspaper reporter who sets up the plan by breaking the story and then complicates matters when he falls for Hazel. The result is a marvelous satire, directed by William Wellman and featuring terrific performances from the two leads as well as Charles Winninger and Walter Connolly. Carole Lombard offers up an ironic monologue about the beauty of dying in what was to be one of her last films prior to her real-life ending in a plane crash.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...It's an important part of screen history..."
    USA Today

    "The screenplay, largely by Ben Hecht, is full of his comically highfalutin turns of phrase, and there are some wonderfully sharp, satiric moments..."
    New York Times

    'It's all good Thirties fun....The cynicism of a cut-throat media machine and a public that gladly eats it up doesn't lurk far beneath the glory of the film's early Technicolor."
