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 doesnÃ¢Â€Â™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.
