It Happened One Night is a film directed by Frank Capra. My initial interest for this film came by recommendation. This film is adapted from the short story by Samuel Hopkins Adams.
Now, I recommend this film to you. This film stars Clark Gable, Claudette Colbert, Walter Connelly, Ward Bond, Alan Hale Sr., Roscoe Karns, Jameson Thomas, Arthur Hoyt, Irving Bacon, Blanche Friderici, and William Bailey. Now you know the cast!
As for the movie, this is what I want to tell you (it’ll arouse your intrigue). Ellie Andrews (Claudette Colbert) runs away from her father (Walter Connelly). Why would she run away from her father? Hmmm.. Ellie meets Peter (Clark Gable) while on a bus ride to New York. Peter recognizes Ellie for the runaway daughter of Mr. Andrews (lots of money). Well now, the plot thickens.
It Happened One Night falls under the romance genre of film. Again, romance movies were unheard of in my previous movie watching days. And now, I watch great films (because they’re great!).
That was a personal burn on myself. Ohhh!
In all seriousness, this film is worth watching. It’s an emotionally moving work of art: a film such as this one should not be overlooked.
I highly recommend watching this film when time allows.
