Ellie Andrews (Claudette Colbert) comes from a wealthy conventional family that has great plans for her future. When she marries a chap that her father disapproves of, the family balance is thrown off, filling the household with arguments. Overwhelmed, Ellie takes off on a bus, roving nomadically across the country before encountering Peter (Clark Gable), a rugged reporter who has just lost his job. Their chance meeting spells fate backwards and forwards, and it`s only a matter of time before their chemistry clicks. It Happened One Night won five Academy Awards in 1934.

Synopsis

Winner of five Academy Awards, Frank Capra's celebrated romantic comedy stars movie legends Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert. When Ellie Andrews, a millionaire's daughter, marries a man her father dislikes, the resulting family squabble sends the beautiful heiress into hiding. She travels across country by bus, a fugitive from high society. En route, she meets the man of her dreams: a sexy but brusque news correspondent who has just lost his job -- which unknown to Ellie, he hopes to recover by selling her story to his former boss. Together, Peter and Ellie have a series of hapless adventures and comic misunderstandings, leading them to the realization that they were made for each other.
