Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It Happened One Night is a good piece of fiction, which, with all its feverish stunts, is blessed with bright dialogue and a good quota of relatively restrained scenes.
Fresh: Instead of attempting a journalistic study of bus-travel, regularly punctuated by comic touches, Director Frank Capra and Robert Riskin who adapted Samuel Hopkins Adams' story, fused the two.
Fresh: One of those stories that without a particularly strong plot manages to come through in a big way, due to the acting, dialog, situations and direction.
Fresh: The direction is excellent. Frank Capra never lets his picture lag for a moment. It is never very exciting, but it moves along snappily and it is full of amusing situations.
Beats the new stuff hands down!
You just don't see chemistry in movies any more. Gable and Cobert are at their best. I hope that more great movies like this will be here for rent. See what movies should be like. It's the people!!!!!! I am also 35.
It's About Time
Clark Gable is one of my favorite actors and I loved it happened one night. We need more movies like this simply because with movies now-a-days they don't teach you to think. They spell everything out for you without allowing you any imagination. Most people don't realize it, but America has become land of the free, home of the stupid. We buy into it too. And it's movies like this that make me feel proud of myself that I haven't bought into such crap. I am 20 years old, not 60...
Finally a REAL classic
This is a true example of the films of "yesteryear". Sans all the fancy effects which makes todays film but this film has what films today do not contain, great acting. I see why this film one so many awards, it's Clark Gable at his best. A must see film for those film buffs that truly appreciate a good film. We can only hope Apple continues to make films of the such available for downloads.
