It Happened One Night
My Rating:
(out of 5 stars)
3.5 Stars
It Happened One Night Poster
Primary Location: First Saw: In Theatre Saw at/with: NH Film Class
Rating: NR Year: 1934 Category: Romance Comedy
Director: Frank Capra Time: 105:00:00 min. Writer: Samuel Hopkins Adams & Robert Riskin

Mine: Clark Gable is charming as the good hearted rake. A timeless comedy.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Legendary romantic comedy doesn't age a bit. Still as enchanting as ever, with reporter Gable and runaway heiress Colbert falling in love on rural bus trip. Hitch-hiking travails, the Walls of Jericho, other memorable scenes remain fresh and delightful. First film to win all five major Oscars: Picture, Actor, Actress, Director, and Screenplay (Robert Riskin). Based on Samuel Hopkins Adams' story ``Night Bus,'' originally published in Cosmopolitan. Remade as musicals EVE KNEW HER APPLES and YOU CAN'T RUN AWAY FROM IT.
