Silver Screen

It had been years since I last saw it, but yesterday I watched a film gem -- It Happened One Night.   It's a near-perfect romantic comedy, my favorite among all of Frank Capra's movies.

What makes the whole thing work so well?  A script with razor-sharp dialog and the wonderful acting of Gable and Claudette Colbert.  She's never been more appealing, and he's at his raffish best.  If you've gone this long in your life and never seen it, or, if you're like me and it's been a long time between looks, watch it.  You won't be sorry.
