Filmmaker Frank Capra deftly helmed "It Happened One Night," about a spoiled heiress who runs away from her family, falling in love with an undercover newspaper reporter in search of a hot story. After they completed filming, actress Claudette Colbert told a friend she'd just finished working on "the worst picture I've ever made." That very same picture would sweep all five main categories at the Academy Awards.
