Movie Mezzanine

It Happened One Night is one of the easiest movies to love and one of the hardest to think of as a work of art.

It's funny, beautifully directed and acted and it's always been one of my favourites.

Guardian [UK]

As buoyant and elegant as bubbles in a glass of champagne, Frank Capra's sublime 1934 comedy... survives triumphantly because of its wit, charm, romantic idealism and its shrewd sketch of married life.

Gable and Colbert have charm to spare, and even though the tropes are well-worn and have been mishandled poorly by every by-the-book chick flick of the last 15 years, it still isn't enough to keep this from working like gangbusters.

The Nation

Among the more gratifying phenomena of the current season has been the growing recognition of It Happened One Night, the Frank Capra production of last year, as one of the few potential classics of the recent cinema.

Still one of the best screwball comedies.

A screwball comedy with charm and sass it established a template that countless films have followed down the decades.

Both stars loathed the experience yet turned in two of their most enduring performances.

Instead of attempting a journalistic study of bus-travel, regularly punctuated by comic touches, Director Frank Capra and Robert Riskin who adapted Samuel Hopkins Adams' story, fused the two.

One of those stories that without a particularly strong plot manages to come through in a big way, due to the acting, dialog, situations and direction.

Q Network Film Desk

The story of a runaway heiress falling in with a devilish, wise-cracking reporter on a cross-country roadtrip now seems like a cliché only because so many other films have copied its structure.

EmanuelLevy.Com

This charming romantic comedy, while grounded in the context of the Depression, offered light fare that's uncharacteristic of Capra. It might have been the first true sleeper since no one involved anticipated such critical and commercial success.

This is Capra at his best, very funny and very light, with a minimum of populist posturing.

Only minorly dated, this film would play well for modern audiences despite being more than 70 years old.

Capra's sense of humour is a little like that of Preston Sturges, though less caustic; and the film shows its stars at their best, Colbert as one of Hollywood's fresher comediennes, Gable as dumb-but-loveable hunk.

Who can resist a movie where the girl's father provides his daughter with a getaway car from her own wedding?
