February 22, 1934 - Many movies from the 1930s are all but forgotten, but one is still enjoyed and rated highly by critics. The movie was It Happened One Night, a screwball romantic comedy directed by Frank Capra, starring Claudette Colbert as a runaway heiress and Clark Gable as a cocky reporter on to a good story. The film was the first to sweep the Academy Awards, winning best picture, director, actor, actress and screenplay. One scene, in which Clark Gable leans on a fence while munching a carrot, inspired the creators of Bugs Bunny. In 1934, there were some 11,000 movie theaters across the U.S. Now, that number is nearly 5,000. (As of 2009)
