A 1937 Re-release Vintage Theatrical Movie Title Card (Learn More)

It Happened One Night, the classic 1934 Frank Capra (winner of the Best Director Academy Award for this film) runaway-heiress-with-undercover-reporter-who-are-complete-opposites-but-fall-in-love-anyway romantic screwball comedy ("Together for the first time!"; "From the Cosmopolitan Magazine story by Samuel Hopkins Adams"; "Screenplay by Robert Riskin"; winner of the Best Picture Academy Award) starring Clark Gable (winner of the Best Actor Academy Award for this film), Claudette Colbert (winner of the Best Actress Academy Award for this film), Walter Connolly, Roscoe Karns, Alan Hale Sr., Ward Bond, and Jameson Thomas. Note that this is a wonderful movie that contains many memorable scenes (perhaps most notably when Gable "instructs" Colbert on how to hitchhike), but it is also memorable for the scene where Gable reveals that he was not wearing an undershirt, which caused undershirt sales to plunge nationwide, and they never recovered!

Important Added Info: Note that Columbia Pictures re-released this classic movie just three years after its first release. For that re-release, Columbia used the exact same printing plates as they had for the first release, solely changing the last digit of the date from 1934 to 1937, but in every other respect, the 1937 posters and lobby cards are identical to the 1934 posters and lobby cards (there are some 1937 posters and lobby cards that have a shield in the middle of the left border that reads "1st PRIZE Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences", and that is not on the 1934 release items)! Because of this great similarity, 1937 posters and lobby cards have sold for a far great percentage of that of the original than any other title I know of (and also, some unscrupulous individuals have altered 1937 one-sheets to make them appear to be 1934 one-sheets, and the same individuals have called the items with the "1st Prize" shield "post-Awards" 1934 items, but they are not!).

Condition: Very Good.
