IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT

On the Road
(NR) USA – 1 hr 45 min  
1934 · d. Frank Capra
Reviews
Starring Clark Gable, Claudette Colbert, Jameson Thomas, Walter Connolly

On the lam from her protective father, a pampered heiress (Claudette Colbert) gets stuck sharing a bus seat with a salty newsman (Clark Gable). She’s headed for a scandalous marriage; smelling a story, he latches on. As the duo bickers their way through Depression-era America, their rivalry develops into a romance fierce enough to topple the Walls of Jericho. Widely credited as the original rom-com, Frank Capra’s snappy, sexy screwball love story swept the 7th Academy Awards.

Shown in conjunction with the film course American Journeys: Road Movies, this screening will be introduced by the course’s instructor, Amy Corbin, Ph.D.
