It Happened One Night
Ellie Andrews is a spoiled heiress who defies her father's wishes and elopes with King Westley, a handsome young man who is secretly only after Ellie's fortune. Distraught at her father's disapproval, she runs away from her Florida home and hops on a boat headed for NYC. While aboard, she meets down-and-out journalist Peter Warne, who gives her an ultimatum: Ellie can give him a wedding exclusive and he'll help her find Westley or he'll notify her father of her whereabouts. Ellie agrees to the former, and the two go on an adventure to find Westley; what they find, instead, is love. Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable star in 1934 screwball rom-com It Happened One Night.
