It Happened One Night

The 30s represented an escapist decade of idealized realities. Capra was very much in love with his own, optimistic vision of humanity, always rescuing American audiences from difficult times, such as the Great Depression, and portraying worlds where any situation was possible. Heartwarming layers of astonishing character development and a revolutionary collision of class issues are the main elements that allowed It Happened One Night to be the most enduring classic among its genre because of its landmark introduction of the screwball comedy. Gable was being born and his vivid personification of authoritative domination, great ambitions and unstoppable passion also established a new limit. Up to this day, this romantic comedy (perhaps the best ever, literally) is now treasured by all filmmakers and lovers alike, and its huge universal appeal is already destined to be conserved immortal. Let's rejoice with this gem.
