Thursday, February 22, 1934

Walked to school with Pauline. Went over to Nadine's after school. We made candy. Had peanut butter and banana sandwiches.

Opened February 22, 1934
"It Happened One Night"
Opened on February 22, 1934
The film centers on a newsman (Clark Gable) who finds a rich Wall Street heiress (Claudette
 Colbert) who is trying to escape the grasp of her tycoon father (Walter Connolly) who will
not let her marry a man by the name of King Westley (Jameson Thomas). The movie follows the 
journey of this newsman and the fugitive heiress on a bus together trying to both make it
 to New York for different reasons: hers is to find her love and his to get ahead in the newsroom.
Throughout their journey they encounter some interesting characters and begin to grow close
 and eventually fall in love.

And who will ever forget the "Walls of Jericho" when they come tumblin' down?!
