Funny, breezy romantic comedy

"You know, I had you pegged right from the jump. Just a spoiled brat of a rich father. The only way you get anything is to buy it, isn't it? You're in a jam and all you can think of is your money. It never fails, does it? Ever hear of the word humility? No, you wouldn't."

Throughout his filmmaking career, Frank Capra directed a number of revered classics, including It's a Wonderful ... read more

Possible the very first romantic comedy...

This film was very heartwarming in my opinion because I believe it shows true character. I find that it is a film with a really big heart and a big meaning to life and what it really means. It is one of those films that is just a classic that can touch people in a romantic way, a funny way and also an emotional way too as it did for me. To me, It Happened One Night is one of the best romantic come... read more

A classic

Since it is such a classic, I really had to watch this movie at some point. Eventually, I ended up with some mixed feelings. Indeed, it is now almost 80 years old (!), it has obviously became a blueprint for all the romantic comedies that came afterwards and, therefore, it definitely deserves some respect. On the other hand, I can't say I was blown away by the whole thing. Indeed, I did enjoy it a... read more

"20.11. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Frank Capra Amazing how this was made 11 years before Mildred Pierce because it feels a lot more modern. I adore the dialogue, the characters, the acting and the script. Lots of memorable scenes, my favorite probably being the one with the people in the bus singing that trapeze swinger song all together. Wonderful. "

"Day 10 – Favorite classic movie If only there would be more romantic comedies like this one. I never did like the idea of sitting on newspapers. I did it once, and all the headlines came off on my white pants. On the level! It actually happened. Nobody bought a paper that day. They just followed me around over town and read the news on the seat of my pants. "
