Capital Celluloid 2016 - Day 144: Mon May 23

It Happened One Night (Capra, 1934): Prince Charles Cinema, 8.45pm


This screening is part of the Classic Film season at the Prince Charles. Full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
Reporter Clark Gable chases spoiled heiress Claudette Colbert across most of the eastern seaboard, pausing long enough between wisecracks to set the definitive tone of 30s screwball comedy. Even though Frank Capra's 1934 film won all five of the top Oscars, it's still pretty good. This is Capra at his best, very funny and very light, with a minimum of populist posturing.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
