A screwball comedy in the truest sense of the word

Ah, what an age it was indeed when romantic movies were truly romantic and even had wit and charm to boot. It Happened One Night opens with socialite Ellie Andrews fleeing her disapproving father to wed her beloved in New York. On the way, she meets journalist Peter Warne who sees a story in the making. Of course, their journey together doesn’t turn out to be a simple one; as a matter of fact chaos reigns- but then so does love. In additional, both parties learn a little something about social classes and prejudices, certainly subjects just as relevant now as they were in 1934.

It's still very funny.

Really wasn't as good as people cracked it up to be

I'm sure it's one of those "you had to be born in that era to get the humor" type situations, but "Night" wasn't all that funny to me, though I did enjoy that hitchiking scene and the originality of it.

It Happens to be an Amazing movie

I absolutely love this film. Might be Frank Capra's best but It's a Wonderful Life might be better.
