It Happened One Night (1934)

  One of my very favorite movies!  Starring Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable-- I couldn't think of a better pair to play their parts.  'It Happened One Night' is about an heiress named Ellie (Claudette Colbert) who runs away from her overbearing father and his attempts at convincing her to annul her recent marriage to King Westley. When she can take no more of his griping, she jumps the boat she was forced onto and attempts to take a bus to New York, back to her husband.  Along the way, she runs into Peter Warne (Clark Gable), an egocentric ex-news reporter, who recognizes her immediately. Aware that her father is looking for her, he gives her two choices-- as a man stole her money earlier, he agrees to help her get to Westley if he can write an exclusive on her, or he'll give her up to her father.  She agrees to the first choice and the movie follows them through their adventures to arrive in New York... (did i make this sound exciting?!?!  well, if i didn't, you should watch it anyway!!)

I also adore her outfit!
