⭐️Claudette Colbert and ⭐️ Clark Gable ❤️❤️❤️ It Happened One Night (1934) 
A romantic comedy bundled into a road movie, It Happened One Night sparkles with wit, two transcendent performances, and an early harbinger of women's charge towards independence. 
Spoiled heiress Ellie Andrews (Claudette Colbert) is at war with her wealthy father Alexander (Walter Connolly), who is holding her prisoner on a yacht. Although she has eloped with her lover King Westley (Jameson Thomas), Alexander refuses to acknowledge the marriage and is looking to have it annulled. Fed up, Ellie makes her escape by jumping off the boat, swimming ashore, and boarding a bus headed to New York, where she hopes Westley is waiting.
❤️ Also on the bus is resourceful but independent-minded journalist Peter Warne (Clark Gable). Peter and Ellie end up sitting on the same bench and quickly irritate each other. As the bus lurches from stop to stop and detectives hired by Alexander crawl across the landscape looking for the runaway heiress, Peter realizes that his travel companion is the scoop of his life. He helps her avoid detection by pretending that they are a couple, sharing a hotel room and hitch-hiking together when the bus starts to attract too much attention. Although Peter is initially just seeking the big story and Ellie just wants to get to New York, they are gradually and unmistakeably drawn to each other. ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

⭐️ Frank Capra ⭐️ Claudette Colbert ⭐️ Clark Gable 👉 In the movie: "It Happened One Night" (1934) ❗️❗️❗️ The romantic aspect of the relationship between Barbara Stanwyck and Frank Capra ended the year before filming "It Happened One Night." Claudette Colbert was offered a photo after Capra rejected Myrna Loy, Miriam Hopkins, Margaret Sullavan, Constance Bennett, Bette Davis and Carole Lombard. Colbert agreed that he "mostly works with Clark" (Gable's part was originally written for Robert Montgomery who refused). :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Time for some Princess pampering 👸 #milkandhoney #cleopatrastyle #claudettecolbert 💃🏼#spatime #birthdaytreats
Just a fun comparison!  Elva and Claudette around the same time frame.  Claudette was her favorite actress!  I wonder if it’s just the style of the time responsible for the similarities or just the petite features alone.  She was not glamorous in any way so later comparisons don’t “match”, but I always love this one.  #grandmabeautiful #claudettecolbert #herfavorite #mygrandmawasthebest #misshersomuch #justplainawesome
I’m excited!  Boom Town is on TCM later tonight and My DVR will be hot 😍 I love everyone in it, but of course Claudette is the reason I’m tuning in ❤️❤️ my daughters name is Chloe, but that’s only because it’s the closest I could get my spouse to Claudette....#claudettecolbert #iloveclaudette #tcm #boomtown #oldhollywoodfilm

Claudette Colbert arrives by train in Paris at midnight, wearing full evening dress, with nothing but five centimes and a pawn ticket in her purse.  By a series of misadventures her character ‘crashes’ an evening musicale hosted by Hedda Hopper.  The grand salon is decorated in the quintessence of 1930s style, with huge, philodendron monstera plants silhouetted against the walls.  Later she goes to play high-stakes bridge (with Mary Astor and Lionel Barrymore) in a card room that is pure John Michel Frank, with walls draped in staff and chairs covered in mouton.  There is another visually marvelous scene in a country house outside of Paris where the Hedda Hopper character (obviously inspired by Elsie de Wolfe) gets everyone to do ‘la conga’ and the orchestra is backed by a whopping 12-fold 17th century Chinese Coromandl screen.  The film is like the pages of ELSIE DE WOLF’S PARIS come to life, and the women all look as though they have stepped out of the pages of  a 1939 VOGUE, intoxicated-looking little evening hats and all.  The film is truly a visual feast, and every time I watch it I am transported! .

「或る夜の出来事」
愛は期間じゃないこと、順番じゃないこと、傲慢で嫌なオヤジな父親が娘とちゃんと心を交わしていたこと、何よりも強い味方だったこと、モノクロ映画は観てるだけでアガること。

"A certain night's event"
Love is not a period, things not in order, arrogant and disgusting father's heart is exchanging properly with her daughter, what was a strong friend, the monochrome movie is just to watch.

•Ellie Andrews: I proved once and for all that the limb is mightier than the thumb.

Just saw this for the first time, and I had the time of my life watching it! I love how in old movies the actors could convey so much romance and love with just their eyes. The romantic stories back then were so beautiful.❤️❤️❤️

Forgotten Movie: Midnight

This movie is so good & has a great cast: Claudette Colbert, Don Ameche, John Barrymore & Mary Astor. Unfortunately, it came out in Hollywood's greatest year (1939) & just gets lost with those other movies.

It Happened One Night (1934)

Gorgeous Clark Gable plays the role of sardonic news reporter Peter Warne, who runs into a  spoiled socialite runaway Ellie Westley (Claudette Colbert), and promises to reunite her with her fiancé (who her father strongly dislikes) in exchange for an sensational exposé. Everything’s going great until Ellie realizes that she doesn’t want to reunite anymore, as she’s in love with Peter who feels the same but doesn’t want to reciprocrate as his “principles” get in the way. Despite separation and unraveling of the misunderstandings, Peter now has a choice to make. 
Why I’d recommend: There’s no such thing as too much of mushy “happily ever afters”. Although the South Asian film industry had some renowned remakes of this classic rom-com [Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin (1991), Chawa Pawa (1959)] and some more, I still keep coming back to this original. Considering it’s a movie of the Pre-Code era, it’s unconventionality is still raw as it was then. Director Frank Capra (Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, It's a Wonderful Life) keeps it tasteful whilst maintaining the trademark Pre-Code innuendos. If you need to be reassured that romance still exists or you’re just plainly a hopeless romantic, take out an hour and forty five minutes of your life for this – you won’t regret.

“I can think of no project that from the outset was as rewarding from the first day to the last. It is easy to understand why. It was a great script, had a great director, and was a cast of professionals all with parts they liked. It was a charmed production from the word go. After the picture was released, I told [director] Joe [Mankiewicz] 'he had resurrected me from the dead.' He had in more ways than one. He handed me the beginning of a new life professionally and personally. I also say a thank-you to Claudette Colbert for hurting her back. Claudette’s loss was my gain. On what strange circumstances are whole lives changed. No broken back—no Gary Merrill.” -Bette, remarking on her role as Margo Channing in All About Eve (1950) in The Lonely Life 💘

A few years ago when I heard someone was writing a book about the starfish brooches Boivin created in the 1930s, I thought it was a pretty slender topic to fill 200-pages. 📖 Well, it ends up the author did not approach the subject as I thought she would. 🔗 Click the link in bio to find out how she tries to make her search into a detective story 🕵🏻‍♀️ and attempts to get dealers to open up their accounts, share their client lists and reveal how much pieces were bought and sold for. 💰 #boivin #jewelrybook 📸 The first starfish made by Boivin - originally purchased by #ClaudetteColbert currently in the @siegelson collection ❤️

It was 1934. Then, prudery brought the world centuries behind

It happened one night, Frank Capra

Essayists: I’ve just spent the last several days w/ my mom, a huge fan of  @TurnerClassicMovies. The channel has been promoting big time “It Happened One Night” (1934), airing Saturday, 8/18, and starring Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable. It’s about an out-of-work newspaper reporter and a socialite on the lam from her controlling father. The Frank Capra film earned Oscars in the five “best” categories: Movie, Director, Screenplay, Actress, and Actor—the first film ever to do so. I’m embarrassed to say I’ve never seen it, but—considering the then-famous players and the film’s success—I’m thinking there’s an essay in it. I wonder.... Stay tuned! #FrankCapra #ClaudetteColbert #ClarkGable #ItHappenedOneNight #greyhoundbus #bestpicture #robertriskin

Guión del gran #billywilder para una comedia de #ernstlubitsch que en su momento fue el colmo del atrevimiento. Lamentablemente el combate entre la todopoderosa censura y el ingenio de los maestros terminó en tablas.

Happy B-day to Cecil B. DeMille. The Hollywood giant knew the power of perfume. He had perfumes created to promote films "Cleopatra" and "Unconquered" and made deals with Macy's and Woolworth to feature them. Female guests at his mountain retreat "Paradise" would be seated at dinner to find a bottle of perfume made from blossoms growing on his land. He also commisioned his perfumer Paul Jones to create a marine scent for guests on his yacht. The great showman knew how to work all the senses! #cecilbdemille #hollywood #director #1930s #movieposter #cleopatra #claudettecolbert #perfume #perfumebottle #goldenage #perfumebottle #oldhollywood #profumo #parfum #duft #fragrance #sotd #vintage

On this day in ancient history (12th August 30 BC), Cleopatra tragically took her own life at age 39 by allowing an asp (Egyptian cobra) to bite her. In other versions offered by Roman historians, Cleopatra poisoned herself using either an implement or toxic ointment. Cleopatra was the last reigning ruler of Ptolemaic Egypt. Here she is seen portrayed by Claudette Colbert in the 1934 historical epic CLEOPATRA as directed by Cecil B. DeMille.

#thepalmbeachstory #trivia 🎬 -Preston Sturges's perfectionism slowed down production. He refused to move on to close-ups until he had a perfect master shot, and he would stop and do a new take if an actor changed a word of the script. William Demarest, who appeared in eight Sturges films, would later say, "He had a great memory. If you changed anything, he'd say, 'Wait a minute,' and, goddamn, he was right." -In-joke: The character John D. Hackensacker performs the song "Goodnight Sweetheart", associated in the 1930s with Rudy Vallee who plays the part.  #prestonsturges #claudettecolbert #joelmccrea #maryastor #rudyvallee #movietrivia #classicsuggestions

#thepalmbeachstory #trivia 📽 -This was Joel McCrea's second picture for Preston Sturges, although his first, Sullivan's Travels (1941), was not released until shortly after this one. -Preston Sturges came up with the character of J.D. Hackensacker III by accident. He wanted to see My Life with Caroline (1941), but arrived at the theatre an hour early. With nothing better to do, he caught the tail end of the second feature, the low-budget musical Time Out for Rhythm (1941). Radio crooner Rudy Vallee was the male lead and though he was primarily straight man for all the film's jokes, every time he opened his mouth the audience roared. Sturges immediately created the role with Vallee in mind. Studio management fought casting the radio star, since his early pictures had been flops, but Sturges persisted. Even with the failed films in his past, Vallee still commanded a high fee because of his success on the radio.  #prestonsturges #claudettecolbert #joelmccrea #maryastor #rudyvallee #movietrivia #classicsuggestions

#thepalmbeachstory #trivia 🎟 -Despite repeated alterations made to the script, the PCA continued to protest the "light treatment of marriage and divorce" in the story, and the similarity between the character "John D. Hackensacker III" and American industrialist John D. Rockefeller. The filmmakers complied with some of the concerns of the PCA by altering specific lines which seemed too suggestive and by reducing "Princess Maud's" unsuccessful marriages from eight to three, plus two annulments. -Paramount signed Rudy Vallee to a contract as a result of his performance in this film. #prestonsturges #claudettecolbert #joelmccrea #maryastor #rudyvallee #movietrivia #classicsuggestions

#thepalmbeachstory #trivia 🎞 -With parts written to their specific talents, most of the actors required little direction. The result was a relaxed set where the cast felt comfortable trying whatever the script demanded. When Joel McCrea had to fall down a flight of stairs at the end of an argument, Preston Sturges even took the fall for him first, just to show him it was safe. -The $700 that Wienie King gives Gerry Jeffers would be worth approximately $10,381 in 2016.  #prestonsturges #claudettecolbert #joelmccrea #maryastor #rudyvallee #movietrivia #classicsuggestions

#thepalmbeachstory #trivia 🏖 -Hackensacker's yacht is 'The Erl King'. This is a play on words and most people read it as 'The Earl King' and think it only refers to the German 'Erl König' (the German word for king). However it is meant to be pronounced 'The Oil King,' a pun on the fact that John D. Hackensacker is based on John D. Rockefeller, the president of Standard Oil, who was known as "the oil king." -The film premièred in England before it opened in the U.S. In summer 1942 it was warmly received there as a welcome respite from the grim wartime news. -Filming wrapped seven days behind schedule. Final production costs came in at about $950,000. #prestonsturges #claudettecolbert #joelmccrea #maryastor #rudyvallee #movietrivia #classicsuggestions

Melvyn Douglas died August 4, 1981 in New York City. He was born Melvyn Edouard Hesselberg April 5, 1901 in Macon, Georgia & grew up in Nashville, Tennessee. While a teen, his aunts revealed his Jewish ancestry to him; he joined the US Army during WWI. After the war, he lived in Chicago where he sold hats at Marshall Fields among other jobs. Shakespeare actor William  Owen presented him his 1st introduction to theater work. He created his own stock company in Madison, Wisconsin before performing with Jessie  Bonstelle's Detroit stock company from 1926-27; he married Rosalind Hightower in 1925 & she bore him a son before their divorce in 1927. He  made his Broadway debut as Melvyn Douglas (he used his maternal grandmother's last name) in 1928; he met his 2nd wife Helen Gahagan when they costarred in Tonight or Never on Broadway. He signed with Sam Goldwyn to reprise his role from Tonight or  Never (1931) with Gloria Swanson at $900 a week. He was then loaned to RKO to replace Leslie Howard in Prestige (1932) which was partly shot in Florida; costar Ann Harding worked overtime to rehearse with him. He returned to NY & did 2 films for Paramount at its Astoria studios. This still of him & Claudette Colbert was from 1 of them, The Wiser Sex (1932). MGM borrowed him to star opposite Garbo in As You Desire Me (1932); it was a hit since it was rumored it would be her last Hollywood film. Goldwyn then loaned him to Universal to replace Colin Clive in James Whale's The Old Dark House (1932). He & costar Gloria Stuart were not included in the twice-daily tea breaks of the mostly English cast. The studio then cast him opposite Tala Birell in Nagana (1932) in hopes she'd be a new Garbo. The film flopped & she was dropped. He returned to New York when Goldwyn didn't renew his contract in 1933. He acted in A.E. Thomas' No More Ladies on Broadway & made Woman in the Dark (1934) opposite Fay Wray at the Biograph studios. After a few more Broadway plays, he returned to Hollywood to appear opposite Claudette Colbert in She Married Her Boss (1935) for Columbia.

Academy Award winning actress Claudette Colbert died July 30, 1996 in Speightstown, Barbados. She was born Emilie Claudette Chauchoin in 1903 in Saint-Mandé, France. Her family moved to the USA when she was a toddler. Although she studied painting, she eventually became a theatrical actress. She created her stage name Claudette Colbert by using her father's middle name Claude & her maternal grandmother's maiden name of Colbert. She made her Broadway debut in December 1923 & became a theater star soon after. She signed a contract with Paramount Pictures & made films at its Astoria studios before moving to Hollywood in 1932. She remained at this studio through 1945 & was one of its top stars. Although her film career spanned from 1927 until 1961, her best films were made in the 1930s & 1940s. She won an Academy Award for Best Actress in 1935 for It Happened One Night (1934) & was nominated 2 more times. She excelled in romantic comedies & dramas, but appeared in the occasional musical or historical film. Off screen, she was a staunch Republican and most likely bisexual (she had two husbands--actor/director Norman Foster & Dr. Joel Pressman--and was involved with artist Verna Hull for the last 20 years  of her life). She was convinced that her left profile was the best side to be photographed. The dark side of the moon (what her film crews called her right profile) rarely appeared in her films. This portrait was from Mitch Leisen's Tonight is Ours (1933) which was an adaptation of Noël Coward's The Queen Was in the Parlour. #claudettecolbert #travisbanton #stuartwalker #noëlcoward #karlstruss #tonightisours #paramountpictures #thequeenwasintheparlour #classichollywood #academyawardwinner #precode #coupe #harlequin #bestactress #romanticcomedy #frenchactress #francoamerican #republican #bisexual #commedienne #latergram

With its jingoism and casual racism SO PROUDLY WE HAIL (1943) is very much of its time, and has to be viewed within its wartime context. It’s not revived much today and it’s a shame, as Paramount’s ultra patriotic tale of wartime nurses trapped behind enemy lines in the Philippines is tough and engaging. And contains a trio of excellent, atypical performances its stars Claudette Colbert, Veronica Lake and Paulette Goddard, who was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar. And this French film poster is gorgeous. #soproudlywehail #claudettecolbert #veronicalake #paulettegoddard #paramount #stars #classicfilm #classiccinema #posterart #poster #art #ww2 #america #americanfilm #hollywood
