The movie tries as hard as it can to be zany with its quirky characters, speed-talking, quick takes, and calm, classical score that brings these features into relief. Alas, fast-talking alone does not zaniness make. The dialogue between Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert in It Happened One Night is both razor-sharp and hilarious, but it wouldn’t work without images like the hitchhiking and the destruction of the walls of Jericho.

I enjoy watching lgbt films, gay comedy, gay drama and gay horror. I think this is a must see movie and I really enjoy watching these movies.
