Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert in "It Happened One Night" (Columbia, 1934)

“It Happened One Night” (Columbia, 1934). A classic American romantic comedy. Claudette Colbert plays Ellie, a spoiled heiress who is running away from her problems. Clark Cable plays Peter, an unsympathetic newspaper reporter who is always on the lookout for his next story. They meet and it’s hate at first sight (of course you know what happens from there…). Delightfully funny, charming and, well, romantic. Academy Award® winner for Best Picture, Best Actor (Gable), Best Actress (Colbert), Best Director (Frank Capra) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Robert Riskin). “Behold the Walls of Jericho!”
