IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT
The first film to sweep the major Oscars® — Best Picture, Director, Screenplay, Actor and Actress — remains one of the Frank Capra-Robert Riskin team's brightest achievements. Rebellious heiress Claudette Colbert, seeking to escape her domineering father, jumps ship in Miami and boards a long-haul bus to NYC. But down-on-his-luck reporter Clark Gable spots the runaway debutante, and, knowing a scoop when he sees it, brokers an exclusive story in exchange for not turning her in. Shared motel rooms, traded barbs and the famous thumb vs. leg hitchhiking scene ensue, en route to rollicking romance. DIR/PROD Frank Capra; SCR Robert Riskin, from the story "Night Bus" by Samuel Hopkins Adams. U.S., 1934, b&w, 105 min. NOT RATED
