Claudette Colbert gives Clark Gable a lesson in “How to hitchhike.”
It Happened One Night (1934) Dir. Frank Capra
Peter: Now watch me. I’m going to use Number One. Keep your eye on that thumb, baby, and see what happens.
Ellie: I’m still watching your thumb.
Peter: Something must have gone wrong. I guess I’ll try number two.
Ellie: When you get up to a hundred, wake me up.
Peter: I guess maybe I won’t write that book after all.
Ellie: Yes. But look at all the fun you had. Mind if I try?
Peter: You! Don’t make me laugh.
Ellie: You’re such a smart aleck! Nobody can do anything but you. I’ll show you how to stop a car and I won’t use my thumb.
