This seriously adorable Frank Capra classic starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert was filmed in Franklin Canyon, the literal center of Los Angeles (we’ll be talking more about the park and adjoining lake later in the week). Not only was It Happened One Night the first comedy to ever win serious film awards, it was the very first film in history (of any genre) to sweep the Oscars completely, winning Best Picture, Actor, Actress, Director and Writing.
