Happy New Year | Holidays | Capra. Sparks fly when a headstrong runaway heiress (Claudette Colbert) and a cynical, down-on-his-luck reporter (Clark Gable) battle hunger and each other on a cross-country trek via bus, thumb, and auto. This sleeper hit of 1934 swept the top five Academy Awards, established Capra as a major director, and initiated the screwball comedy-romance cycle.
