It Happened One Night

Winner of five Academy Awards, this famous screwball comedy stars Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert as two mismatched lovers. Colbert escapes from her millionaire father, who wants to stop her from marrying a worthless playboy - so the stage is set for the quintessential romantic comedy: boy meets girl; girl thinks he's a cad; boy thinks she's uptight; you know how it ends!
