Columbia Pictures

1934: Frank Capra's romantic comedy "It Happened One Night," starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert, premieres at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The movie would go on to become the first to win all five major Academy Awards (Best Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, and Screenplay), a feat that would not be matched until 1975's "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and later by 1991's "The Silence of the Lambs."
