Script: It Happened One Night

It Happened One Night was written by Robert Riskin based on a story by Samuel Hopkins Adams. (P.S. I love that the poster says the film earned “1st Prize” at the Oscars.)

Quote of the Day: Frank Lentricchia

The camera has a mind of its own–its own point of view. Then the human bearer of time stumbles into the camera’s gaze–the camera’s domain of pristine space hitherto untraversed is now contaminated by human temporality. Intrusion occurs, but the camera remains transfixed by its object. It doesn’t care. The camera has no human fears.
