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!
