Opposites attract with magnetic force in Frank Capra’s road-trip delight about a runaway socialite (Claudette Colbert) and a roguish reporter (Clark Gable) determined to get the scoop on her scandalous disappearance. The first film to accomplish the feat of sweeping all five major Oscar categories (Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay), It Happened One Night is among the most gracefully constructed films of the early sound era, packed with clever situations and gags, and featuring two actors sparking with a chemistry that has never been bettered. (USA, 1934, 105 mins, English | Dir. Frank Capra)
