Girls’ Night Out: “It Happened One Night” @Tybee Post

By Jim Reed/Do Savannah

On Feb. 22, Tybee Post Theater continues its “Girls Night Out” series with a one-show-only presentation of beloved director Frank Capra’s 1935 Oscar-winning smash“It Happened One Night,” starring the radiant Claudette Colbert and the dashing Clark Gable. It’s the tale of a spoiled heiress whose wealthy father attempts to destroy her marriage to a character he doesn’t care for. This leads the daughter into a chance meeting with a snarky newspaper reporter, and before you can say “meet cute,” he’s fallen for her.

A staple of late-night TV screenings in the 1970s, it is rarely seen these days, but has stood the test of time and remains a true gem of an old movie that should be appreciated by today’s young people just as well as it was over 80 (!) years ago. I mean, hey, how can you pass up an opportunity to see a film that won Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and Best Picture? Admission includes your choice of a beverage (hard or soft), or you can make reservations in advance at tybeeposttheater.org for $35, which includes a three-course dinner before the 7 p.m. film at 80 E. Gastropub, just a few blocks from the venue.

Until next week, see you at the movies, be kind to those around you and don’t forget to turn off that cell phone.
