5.0 out of 5 stars A film which blows its own trumpet
"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...

3.0 out of 5 stars "Excuse me lady, but that upon which you sit is mine."
Peter Warne: Why didn't you take off all your clothes? You could have stopped forty cars.
Ellie Andrews: Well, ooo, I'll remember that when we need forty cars.
On-screen chemistry has the ability to turn a good film into something special. Look no further than Frank Capra's "It Happened One Night" for proof of this. Whoever came up with the idea of pairing Clark...

This is a black and white movie and is one of the best comedies ever made. Gable at his best. This is worth a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars PURE JOY!, 17 Oct. 2010
By 
H. Evans (Wales) - See all my reviews

This review is from: It Happened One Night [DVD] (DVD)
IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT IS SIMPLY ONE OF THE BEST FILMS OF ALL TIME - EASILY IN THE TOP THREE. THE LEADS ARE IMPECIBLE AND THEY GENERATE A CHEMISTRY ONLY A HANDFUL OF TODAYS STARS CAN ONLY HOPE TO EMULATE. YOU CAN ONLY IMAGINE HUGH GRANT AND JULIA ROBERTS AS TODAYS LEADS AND EVEN THEY COULD NOT MATCH GABLE AND CORBETT. OF COURSE THE HITCH HIKING SCENE IS A CLASSIC BUT I LOVE THE ROMANTIC MOMENTS WHEN GABLE LOOKS AT HER AS HE TUCKS HER INTO THE HAY IN THE FIELD. ALSO CORBETT WHEN SHE REALISES THAT SHE LOVES HIM AND BEGS HIM TO TAKE HER WITH HIM TO THAT PACIFIC ISLAND. GABLE WAS DROP DEAD SEXY IN THIS AND IT IS NO WONDER HE WAS THE KING OF HOLYWOOD.WHATS SURPRISING IS THE COMIC TIMING, AND CHARM THAT HE DEMONSTRATES. COLBERTT IS BOTH MOVING AND BEAUTIFUL GIVING A LOVELY VULNERABLE PERFORMANCE WHICH BLENDS SO WELL WITH GABLES SOLID ONE. THIS FILM IS OVER 70 YEARS OLD AND IS STILL AS FRESH AND RELEVANT TODAY. OWN IT, WATCH IT AND TREASURE IT AS A TRUE CENIMA CLASSIC.
