It Happened One Night: A Movie Review

Oh the joy… I first saw the entire movie just recently, and I must say, it was exhilarating! I haven’t seen a movie like that in such a long time. Romantic and hilarious, this movie stole my heart. It might be because of the fact it’s from the 1930s… or possibly it’s because of Clark Gable. It might be the scene where Gable tells Colbert to ‘stop bawling!’ I don’t know what it is, but this movie is extremely high on my list of favorite movies.

Claudette Colbert plays a heiress who runs away from her father. She tries to make her way to New York, but on the way meets Clark Gable. Gable plays a journalist looking for a hot new story. Recognizing Colbert, he leads her to New York when she agrees to sell her story. Over the entire movie, Colbert soon falls for Gable, and vice versa. At the end when she returns to her usual life, she is about to get married… that is until Gable sweeps her off her feet.

I won’t go into too much detail, but this movie is absolutely wonderful. It was the first motion picture to win the major five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actress, and Best Actor. It’s a heartwarming tale, and definitely worth watching!

Today, is one of the biggest days of my life; I am graduating from high school (with honors!). You can't even imagine all of the feelings I am feeling. I am excited, nervous, worried, upset, and apathetic all at the same time. It hasn't sunk in quite yet.

I'm one of the lucky ones. Compared to a bunch of people I know, I'm proud and happy. I'm happy that I am graduating from such a nice school. I had a wonderful senior year and high school career. I am proud of myself.
