Format: DVD
"It Happened One Night" is one of the most enduring of romantic comedies. Released in 1934, its black and white images are iconic - Gable & Goddard hitching is a classic scene, but there are many others from the film which have an unforgettable cachet. Set against the realities of the Depression, Frank Capra delivers a distinct feel-good quality; this was a film which attracted a huge popular audience.
Claudette Colbert plays a beautiful heiress who has married a lounge-lizard society type against the wishes of her father. Father keeps daughter locked up on his yacht while he pursues nullification of the marriage, but Colbert escapes and sets off on a bus ride back to her husband in New York. She has never done anything so independent before, has never travelled on anything as cosmopolitan, never mind proletarian, as a bus. She simply hasn't a clue how to survive without servants.
On the bus she meets down-on-his-luck newspaperman, Clark Gable. The pair team up, eking out the few dollars they have between them, travelling by bus, hitching lifts, coyly sharing motel rooms, a blanket hung by rope to separate twin single beds - a system they famously describe as 'the walls of Jericho'.
"It Happened One Night" won five Oscars - Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, and Best Adaptation (Robert Riskin's script). Made by Columbia, it was an unlikely hit - Capra struggled to cast it and it was certainly not as well promoted as many of its rivals that year. But the public loved it. The film gently disparages the rich, spoiled background of the heiress - the film starts with Colbert on hunger strike, but on the bus journey she will meet people who are actually starving because they have no money.

It Happened One Night is one of the best films ever made. It is the perfect romantic comedy with one memorable scene after another. Although the movie is nearly seventy years old it has aged remarkably well. The storyline is relatively fast paced (for a 30's film) and it also benefits from the extensive use of location filming. The exceptional quality of the print used by Columbia Tristar in the manufacturing of this DVD ensures maximum viewing pleasure. As far as the extra features go, considering this is a Region 2 DVD they're not bad. Of particular note is a radio broadcast made a few years after the movie again starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert. The only disappointment is the absence of an excellent commentary track by Frank Capra Jr that appears on the Region 1 release. Given that this DVD is more expensive than the American version it's a pity Columbia Tristar couldn't negotiate the rights to this commentary.... Still, you have to applaud them for including an old classic like this in their schedule of DVD releases. At the time of writing the Region 1 DVD is still available from Amazom.com (USA), otherwise sit back enjoy this one.

This is the story of a little rich girl (Claudette Colbert) opposing her father by running away. She 'accidently' hooks up with Peter (Clark Gable) a just-fired news reporter and so begins the tale. The film was one of the first to sweep the boards at the Oscars - and deservedly so in my opinion - both Colbert and Gable sparkle on screen - they were both quite young 'ish when this film was made and the innocence of the era shines through without being 'mawkish' or boring.
I thoroughly enjoyed watching this again - the humour is still as fresh as when it was made and the transfer to DVD means the overall picture quality is bright and clear.

Format: DVD
Although this movie from 1934 certainly shows its age, it is still a very effective comedy largely on account of the chemistry between the two leads. Here we have a very young Clark Gable who was surely providing a model for romantic male leads to follow. Compared to some romantic male leads (hangovers from the silent era) in early thirties movies, Gable is genuinely handsome and charming and shows a real flair for comedy. He is also, crucially, young - something not always guaranteed in this era. For once, the leading lady seems to be the older in the pairing but Claudette Colbert was still very attractive and also very good at the comedy aspects of the role - one of my favourite moments is when the pair pretend to be a married couple to foil the detectives who are after Colbert's character, Colbert is particularly excellent here. I liked the 'road movie' style and (not having watched many old movies) found the bus setting atmospheric and original. There's a very good 'feel-good' moment when the passengers are all singing together on the bus - its fun! Perhaps the more daring aspects of the movie, eg the 'walls of Jericho' are not quite as daring as they once were but they still work.

Overall I enjoyed this movie very much and think it truly is a classic.

Format: DVD
This is one of my favourite films, and features one of my favourite actors, Clark Gable. This film has been called the 'original' screwball comedy. Claudette Colbert plays Ellie Andrews, who has escaped from her millionare father who wants to stop her marrying playboy King Westley. She gets on a coach heading for New York, and there she meets reporter Peter Warne(Gable). He will help her get back to New York if he is allowed to write a story on her. I won't say anything more about the plot, except you have to see this! Look out for a hilarious hitchhiking scene!
