The screwball to end all screwballs, Frank Capra’s IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT is one of the most rip-roaring and gorgeous romantic comedies ever to grace the big screen. When wealthy socialite Ellie Andrews (Claudette Colbert) runs away from her controlling father to her gold-digging fiancé, hiding in plain sight on the “low class” night bus to New York from Florida, little does she realize that she’s about to fall into the arms of down-on-his-luck reporter Peter Warne (Clark Gable). From the luxurious yachts and stately mansions of the rich to the hard road camps, eateries and crowded buses of the poor, Ellie and Peter’s journey is not only filled with laughs and romance, it is a lens through which Capra examined every strata of American life during the Great Depression. The first film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture, Actor, Actress, Director and Screenplay.
