It Happened One Night (Accadde una notte) – 1934

Directed by  Frank Capra

Starring: Clark Gable; Claudette Colbert; Walter Connolly.

This is the story of how Peter Warne blew down the Walls of Jericho.

Despite not Gable nor Colbert wanted to make this film, both won an Academy Award as best leading actors. It happened one night has been the first film winning the “Big Five” Academy Awards (best picture, direction, actor, actress, writing).

A related film I like: Bandits (2001) directed by Barry Levinson; starring: Bruce Willis, Cate Blanchet and Billy Bob Thornton

Questa è la storia di come Peter Warne distrusse  le Mura di Gerico.

Nonostante né Gable né la Colbert volessero fare questo  film, vinsero entrambi l’Oscar come migliori attori protagonisti. Accadde una notte è stato il primo film a vincere i cosiddetti “Big Five” alla premiazione degli Oscar (miglio film, regia, attore, attrice, sceneggiatura).

Un film collegato che mi piace: Bandits (2001) diretto da Barry Levinson; con: Bruce Willis, Cate Blanchet e Billy Bob Thornton.
