It Happened One Night ★★★★★

Transcendent. The whole inner world of this movie...night buses, donuts, motor lodges, con artists, reporters, hitchhiking...is so genuine and richly detailed in its own rundown way. I can’t get enough of it.

I love that Gable and Colbert went slumming over at lowly Columbia Pictures and it took their stardom to a new level (with Oscars to boot).
