DescriptionHAZEL FLAGG is based on the film Nothing Sacred, with screenplay by Ben Hecht from a story by James Street. A Vermont girl becomes the center of media attention when she is wrongly believed to be sick from radium poisoning. Music samples provided courtesy of Sepia Records and Warner/Chappell Music Inc.
Wallace Cook, a writer for Everywhere Magazine, suggests that his editor should run an article about small-town girl Hazel Flagg, purportedly dying from exposure to radium. Cook invites her to New York City for an interview. After accepting she discovers that she was misdiagnosed but, eager to visit the big city, decides not to reveal the truth and becomes a media darling embraced by a public deeply moved by her sad story.
