It happened one night

Opposites attract with magnetic force in this romantic road-trip delight, about a spoiled runaway socialite and a roguish man-of-the-people reporter who is determined to get the scoop on her scandalous disappearance. The first film to accomplish the very rare feat of sweeping all five major Oscar categories (best picture, best actor, best actress, best director, and best screenplay), is among the most gracefully constructed and edited films of the early sound era.

Samuel Hopkins Adams and the business of writing

by:Kennedy, Samuel V.

"Samuel V. Kennedy offers the first definitive work on the magazine muckraker who became a biographer, novelist, historian, and master storyteller - Samuel Hopkins Adams (1871-1958)." "This book traces the prolific and eclectic writing career of Adams who wrote more than fifty books and wrote the scripts for the films, It Happened One Night (1934) and the 1920's sensation, Flaming Youth. Kennedy offers insight into Adams's relationships with fellow writers, agents, magazine editors, book publishers, and reviewers, which he maintained throughout an illustrious career. Noted for his upstate New York novels and stories, Adams's ability to adapt to changing times while continuing to attack sham and hypocrisy mark his successful career."--BOOK JACKET.
