Boasting such superlatives as "Mastered from an original 35mm print" and as "being the only version(s) of the of the original film authorized for release from the estate of David O. Selznick," Kino has announced aDecember 20th release date for the above two perpetually public domain films on standard and Blu-Ray.

Neither will have bonus features, but both are expected to be a vast improvement of previous releases from various manufacturers.

Nothing Sacred
As potent today as it was when released in 1937, this classic screwball satire stars Carol Lombard as Hazel Flagg, the small-town girl who mistakenly believes she's dying of radium poisoning.

Sensing a great human interest story that will tug the public's heartstrings and help sell newspapers, exploitative journalist Wally Cook (Fredric March) brings Hazel to New York City and turns her into a media darling. Wally's callous strategy takes a sudden turn when he starts having feelings for the vulnerable Hazel.

Filmed in early three-strip Technicolor and scripted by Ben Hecht and James H. Street, this sharp comedy still sizzles with its cynical take on media profiteering, and the matching of Lombard and March is unforgettably entertaining.

A Farewell to Arms
A tale of the love between ambulance driver Lt. Henry (Cooper) and Nurse Catherine Barkley (Hayes) during World War I. The action takes place in Italy and the two fall in love during the war and will stop at nothing to be together. The film also analyses Lt. Henry's feelings on war and the purpose of fighting.
