The Aero’s Frank Capra retrospective closes this evening with It Happened One Night and Platinum Blonde at 7:30. There’s never a bad time to watch the Clark Gable/Claudette Colbert confection It Happened, which won all five major Oscars (picture, director, actor, actress and screenplay) and may well be the greatest romantic comedy of time: It’s enchantingly funny and sweet from first frame to last. Another rom-com — this one starring Jean Harlow, Robert Williams and Loretta Young — Platinum was not as well received at the time of its initial release but has seen its reputation rise in the decades since.
Sat., Jan. 3, 8-11 p.m., 2015
