It Happened One Night (dir. Frank Capra, 1934)
A fun screwball comedy (like all screwball comedies), if chauvinistic (and yes, I know that, gosh-darn, that just plain reflects 1930’s society). Good for a laugh, but to be honest, I found this a little underwhelming – I was entertained, but not captivated. Of course, if I hadn’t allowed the praise heaped on this film to build up my expectations, that wouldn’t have been a let-down.
