Movie: It Happened One Night
I just watched a gem of movie, It Happened One Night (Netflix, Wikipedia, IMDB). It's a 1934 romantic comedy that was truly delightful to watch. It stars Claudette Colbert as Ellie, a spoiled heiress who evades her father and while on the run meets Clark Gable's Peter, a newspaper man who initially sees the story of lifetime in her. Of course, what initially turns out as a simple deal turns into a budding romance with much hilarity along the way including impromptu bus singing, awkwardness in one room cabins, evading detectives and a very humorous lesson in hitchhiking. Enjoy!
