Spoiled Ellie Andrews (Colbert) escapes from her millionaire father (Walter Connolly), who wants to stop her from marrying a worthless playboy.

Enroute to New York, Ellie gets involved with an out-of-work newsman, Peter Warne (Gable).

When their bus breaks down, the bickering couple set off on a madcap hitchhiking expedition. Complications fly when the runaway heiress and brash reporter fall in love.

Directed by filmmaking luminary Frank Capra, It Happened One Night was the first movie to be honoured with all five major Oscars®: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, and Best Screenplay.

Experience this whip-smart comedic classic in an all-new ravishing 4K restoration, in commemoration of its 90th anniversary.
