It Happened One Night (1934) NR

The first—and for over 40 years the only—movie to win Oscars® in all 5 of the top categories: Picture, Director, Actor, Actress and Screenplay. Frank Capra directed this quintessential romantic comedy about a wealthy socialite (Claudette Colbert) and a wise-cracking newspaperman (Clark Gable) who become unlikely travel companions. The hitchhiking scene, where Colbert schools Gable, is a classic. ("I’ll stop a car, and I won’t use my thumb!”)
