Rated NR · 105 minutes · 1934

Romantic comedy
Reporter Clark Gable chases spoiled heiress Claudette Colbert across most of the eastern seaboard, pausing long enough between wisecracks to set the definitive tone of 30s screwball comedy. Frank Capra's 1934 film won all five of the top Oscars, but it's still pretty good. This is Capra at his best, very funny and very light, with a minimum of populist posturing.
Director: Frank Capra
Writer: Samuel Adams and Robert Riskin
