It Happened One Night Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

Director Frank Capra (Mr. Smith Goes to Washington) took home every Oscar in the book (well, okay, all the major ones) for this seminal 1934 comedy starring Clark Gable as a hard-bitten reporter who stays close to a runaway heiress (Claudette Colbert) so not to lose a good story. Funny and sexy, the film is full of memorable scenes often referred to in other films, such as the "Wall of Jericho" (a mere bedcover hung on a clothesline down the middle of the room), and Colbert's famous flash of thigh to stop a speeding car in its tracks. Capra's brisk, urbane brand of... wit was a perfect complement to his populist faith in the common man (in this case, Gable's character), and this inspiration makes this film a spirited entertainment and an uplifting experience. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com [show more]

Frank Capra's Oscar-winning classic romantic drama starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert. Heiress Ellie Andrews (Colbert) flees her disapproving millionaire father (Walter Connolly) when he forbids her to marry worthless playboy King Westley (Jameson Thomas). En route to her fiancé, Ellie meets unemployed reporter Peter Warne (Gable). The unlikely pair are forced to rough it together when their bus breaks down, but Peter's plans to sell the story of their journey together hit a snag when he finds himself falling in love with Ellie. The film became the first to achieve the feat of winning all five major awards at the Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor (Gable), Best Actress (Colbert) and Best Adapted Screenplay.
