It Happened One Night (1934; 105mins.)

A rich young woman (Claudette Colbert) decides to marry an idle playboy against her father's will. Her father holds her captive on his yacht but she escapes and, while on her way to New York, becomes entangled with an unemployed news reporter (Clark Gable). A string of zany misadventures leads them to realize they're madly -- if reluctantly -- in love.

Dir: Frank Capra
