[8/10] Crucial Movies: It Happened One Night (1934)

“And she is the reader
who browses the shelf
and looks for new worlds
but finds herself.”
— Laura Purdie Salas (via observando) —

She certainly has a mind of her own.

a guardian angel. an angry one.

I’m more of a man than you’ll ever be, and more of a woman than you’ll ever get.


Being the only female in what was basically a boys’ club must have been difficult for her. Miraculously, she didn’t compensate by becoming hard or quarrelsome. She was still a girl, a slight lovely girl who lay in bed and ate chocolates, a girl whose hair smelled like hyacinth and whose scarves fluttered jauntily in the breeze. But strange and marvelous as she was, a wisp of silk in a forest of black wool, she was not the fragile creature one would have her seem.
