a classic film--a must for lovers of golden age Hollywood

Great stars in roles that allowed them to play off of each other--great chemistry between Gable and Colbert. And just plain a fun, satisfying storyline, too.

That it's one of those great, classic, must-see films adds to the above. Don't miss this one.


Still holding the test of time, "It Happened One Night" is just as good as it ever was. At the time it was released, it caused sensations for its scandalous flaunting of sexuality, and it's interesting to watch nowadays in that context. Of course Clark Gable is deviously charming, and a lot of the humor still holds up well today.
