The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will premiere a new, digitally restored version of Clark Gable's 1934 Best Picture winner It Happened One Night.
The Academy will premiere the film on July 12. The screening will be held to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Frank Capra comedy classic, which was the first of only three movies in history to win Oscars for Best Picture, Directing, Actor, Actress and Screenplay.
The feat was not repeated until One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest released, four decades later.
It Happened One Night revolves around a spoiled runaway heiress Claudette Colbert and a rogue newspaperman, played by Gable. They become a reluctant hitchhiking duo on an interstate bus trip.
The film's plot later inspired many films including Raj Kapoor's 1956 Chori Chori featuring Nargis, which became the basis for Aamir Khan's Dil Hai Ke Manata Nahi.
Digital restoration was done on It Happened One Night by Sony Pictures Entertainment at Colorworks.
