Frank Capra’s beloved rom-com stars Claudette Colbert as a spoiled heiress, who runs away from home and gets tethered to an undercover reporter, played by Clark Gable. Colbert told a friend it was the worst film she’d made to date, only to watch it become a huge success. Both she and Gable won Oscars for their respective performances.
