This RomanticComedy from 1934 was directed by Creator/FrankCapra. It was a low-budget movie that only became a huge success after it attracted a very strong word-of-mouth, and stayed in theaters for many years. It was the first comedy to win the AcademyAward for Best Picture, and the first film to sweep all five major categories (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Screenplay) in the same year -- a feat repeated only twice since, with ''Film/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'' and then ''Film/TheSilenceOfTheLambs''. It established Creator/ColumbiaPictures as a major film company, made Clark Gable a star, let the world know that Frank Capra was a great director, and might be one of the earliest examples of a CultClassic. Its title was the solution to the very first rebus on ''Series/{{Concentration}}''.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: This movie either created or popularized a ''lot'' of romantic comedy tropes, so much so that most modern viewers would find it boring and predictable.

* RunawayBride: One of the, if not ''the'' earliest example on film. Ellie races away from the altar and into the arms of Peter at the last moment
