Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert star in Frank Capra's screwball comedy, "It Happened One Night." Threatened with an annulment of a marriage Ellie's (Colbert) father disapproves of, Ellie takes off on a runaway journey to meet up with her playboy hubby. Along the way she runs into Peter Wayne (Gable), a reporter, who offers to help for an exclusive on her story. Winner of five Academy Awards for 1934, this film is just plain fun.
