Blu-Ray Pick of the Week: "It Happened One Night" (1934)

An essential blu-ray pick this week is Frank Capra's classic screwball romantic comedy, and it just so happens to be one of my favorite movies of all time. Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert take to the road, she's a runaway heiress and he's a newspaper reporter chasing a big story- hijinks ensure of course, along with romance and one of the great "jilted at the altar" wedding scenes. This movie kind of invented the blueprint for romantic comedy and the best and most amazing part about it is that it all holds up 80 years later. Trust me, you won't find such a perfect blend of sophistication and romantic chemistry in a single movie made today, which makes this film feel shockingly fresh and completely satisfying- it's a true gem.
