One hell of a film, believe you me.

One of my favorite Best Picture Winners.

My favorite little bit of trivia. It is rumored that Friz Freleng based Bugs Bunny on the Clark Gable character. Particularly the hitchhiking scene where he is talking fast and eating carrots.

Adorable leads and enchanting story, and a fantastic ending, It Happened One Night is definitely one of the best romance movies.
