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

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

*** This review contains spoilers ***

It Happened One Night was my first exposure to what I now consider to be my favourite genre of film, the screwball comedy. I’ll never forget the feeling of exuberance at watching Clark Gable run to his boss at the newspaper to pitch a story about how he’s fallen in love with a princess, such energy, such emotion, I had never felt such a way ... read more

"First viewing - Aug. 30th As I was picking up my Bond movies, I realized I've watched far too many modern films this month. So I decided to balance it out a bit, and when it came time to do so I figured I'd run through a trio of films that were made before I was. I began my day with this film, which I've seen much praise for since I joined this site. And now I can count myself among those who appreciate it. I have no doubt it inspired many romantic comedies that followed in its wake, the main "

"Opposites attract with magnetic force in this romantic road-trip delight from Frank Capra, about a spoiled runaway socialite (Claudette Colbert) and a roguish man-of-the-people reporter (Clark Gable) who is determined to get the scoop on her scandalous disappearance. The first film to accomplish the very rare feat of sweeping all five major Oscar categories (best picture, best actor, best actress, best director, and best screenplay), It Happened One Night is among the most gracefully constructed"

What Is the Deal With Donut Dunking?!

“*** This review contains spoilers ***

It Happened One Night was my first exposure to what I now consider to be my favourite genre of film, the screwball comedy. I’ll never forget the feeling of exuberance at watching Clark Gable run to his boss at the newspaper to pitch a story about how he’s fallen in love with a princess, such energy, such emotion, I had never felt such a way from watching a movie before. It Happened One Night is the famous and most widely seen film of its genre, and I believe it deserves such an accolade, something unforgettable is happening in every scene, whether funny or tender.

In his opening scene Clark Gable is introduced as the king, couldn’t be more adapt. Watching the movie closely, I can say that everything this man says is pure gold,” read more
