Then, the movie that changed it all: Creator/FrankCapra’s classic ScrewballComedy ''Film/ItHappenedOneNight''--no one thought it would amount to anything, least of all Claudette. Before the film’s shooting, she famously asked for [[OnlyInItForTheMoney a doubling of her salary (making it $50,000)]] and that the film wrap up before her planned ski vacation. Fortunately, the film succeeded and shot Claudette to movie stardom, winning the UsefulNotes/AcademyAward for Best Actress and achieving success as a top comedienne.

She signed up with [[{{Creator/Paramount}} Paramount Pictures]], and gradually received roles with the bigwigs of the 1930s Hollywood: ''Film/TheSmilingLieutenant'' directed by Creator/ErnstLubitsch, and two Creator/CecilBDeMille films, ''The Sign of the Cross'' and ''Cleopatra''.
