City of Beautiful Nonsense is a 1935 British drama film directed by Adrian Brunel and starring Emlyn Williams and Sophie Stewart. The film is based on the best-selling 1909 novel of the same name by E. Temple Thurston, which had previously been filmed as a silent by Henry Edwards in 1919. The plot deals with a young woman who is in love with a penniless composer, but believes she must marry a wealthy man to please her father and only realises after various tribulations that she should follow her heart rather than her head. The film is not currently held in the archives of the British Film Institute, and is classed as "missing, believed lost".
