Episode 63: It Happened One Night
Darn clever, these romantic comedies. We're bringing down the walls of Jericho as we watch Frank Capra's multiple Oscar-winning hit It Happened One Night from 1934. Listen in as we discuss the amazing chemistry of stars Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable, examine whether the film's problematic views on gender affect its reputation as a classic, and explore the film's influence on countless movies that followed it. Warning: Contains explicit language and spoilers but no kissing.
