Frank Capra broke new in the screwball comedies in the early 1930's. The film is "It Happened One Night" and it star Clark Gable as reporter Peter Warne, who is working on a story on Ellie Andrews who ran away from her wedding. She journey from Florida to New York City with Peter helping her. Hot on the trail are two detectives who are looking for her. You got to remind yoursalf that this is 1934. Air transportation back then is rare, so Peter and Ellie must take the bus. And there are places to stay for the night called "Autocamps," which is cheaper than Motel. Also, keep in mind, the Great Depression is still on. "It Happened One Night" is a travel comedy about two people who are going from point A, which is Florida to Point B, which is New York City. So this movie is made in 1934. So What? The film might be old, but the ideas aren't. "It Happened One Night," won five Academy Awards. Another good reason to see this film. Another reason: A good history lesson on the 1930's.
