SCREWBALL COMEDY CLASSICS FOR THE 2013 NEW YEAR
Double Feature!
IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT / HOLIDAY
IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT
1934, Sony Repertory, 105 min, USA, Dir: Frank Capra

The first film to win all five major Oscars (As if a comedy could ever pull that off today!) remains a jewel of timing and charm, as runaway bride Claudette Colbert finds herself saddled with pushy reporter Clark Gable, who smells the story of his career. The legendary hitchhiking and "Walls of Jericho" scenes are only the tip of this matchless comic tour de force. Screenplay by Robert Riskin; with Walter Connolly, Alan Hale and Roscoe Karns.


HOLIDAY
1938, Sony Repertory, 93 min, USA, Dir: George Cukor

Society girl Katharine Hepburn falls in love with her sister's idiosyncratic fiancé (a pitch-perfect Cary Grant), and the result is the greatest nonconformist comedy ever made. Working with Philip Barry's play as his foundation, director George Cukor considers serious issues about the human condition and what it means to be truly independent, yet does it all with a light, hilarious and charming touch.
