What: It Happened One Night - High Museum's Rich Theatre

When: Friday, May 14,[masked]:30 PM

Where:
Rich Theatre at the High Musuem
1280 Peachtree Street, N.E.
Atlanta, GA 30309

What is it?
It Happened One Night is a witty, risqu? 1934 screwball comedy that pairs Clark Gable with whip-smart Claudette Colbert (who played a saucy Cleopatra that same year).

He's a rascally newspaperman who's recently been fired but hopes to reclaim his job. She's a spoiled rich girl eager to escape her controlling father, who's just had her marriage to a society aviator annulled. They meet on an all-night bus from Miami to New York and, per the rules of screwball, all sorts of complications ensue, including a wonderful bit involving the two trying to hitch a ride.

Director Frank Capra shot the film in four weeks and hit the Oscar jackpot, making the first movie to win five major Academy Awards?a record finally broken by One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
(U.S., 1934, 105 minutes.)

Two of Clark Gable's cars, a 1934 Packard Speedster and a 1935 Duesenberg Roadster, are on view in The Allure of the Automobile. They were gifts to Gable from his wife, Carole Lombard.
