Opposites attract with magnetic force in this romantic road-trip delight, about a spoiled runaway socialite and a roguish man-of-the-people reporter who is determined to get the scoop on her scandalous disappearance. The first film to accomplish the very rare feat of sweeping all five major Oscar categories (best picture, best actor, best actress, best director, and best screenplay), is among the most gracefully constructed and edited films of the early sound era.
