Runaway socialite Ellie Andrews (Claudette Colbert) is en route to the Big Apple to elope with a fortune-hunting flyboy. Along the way she meets a crusty newspaperman (Clark Gable), who's just been sacked and - unbeknownst to Ellie - plans to sell her story to get his job back. But a string of zany misadventures leads them to realize they're madly - if reluctantly - in love.
Directed by Frank Capra, this film classic is screwball comedy at its best. Colbert and Gable are perfectly matched as a headstrong heiress and a newspaperman who fight the battle of the sexes on a cross-country road trip. This was the first film to win all five major Oscars - Best Picture, Director, Actor, Actress and Screenplay.
