It Happened One Night (1934) Clark Gable by CinemaLibreWatchonline
It Happened One Night is a 1934 American comedy film with elements of screwball comedy directed by Frank Capra, in which a pampered socialite (Claudette Colbert) tries to get out from under her father’s thumb, and falls in love with a roguish reporter (Clark Gable). The plot was based on the story Night Bus by Samuel Hopkins Adams, which provided the shooting title. It Happened One Night was one of the last film romantic comedies created before the MPAA began enforcing the 1930 production code in 1934. In spite of its title the movie takes place over several nights and none is particularly key to the plot.

  1. The interesting thing about those three films is that while they won the big 5, none of the three won any ortehs (and IHON didn’t even get any other nominations).On the other hand, outside of IHON, the only Best Picture Sweeps (not counting Grand Hotel, with its 1 win/nom) – Gigi, Last Emperor, Return of the King – all failed to earn any acting Oscars.
