As in most Frank Capra films, everything turns out all right in the end; the film fit very well with the upbeat view of the world that Frank Capra repeatedly tried to portray. Friz Freleng's unpublished memoirs mention that this was one of his favorite films, and that it contains at least three things upon which the character Bugs Bunny was based:

  • The character Oscar Shapely's personality
  • The manner in which character Peter Warner was eating carrots and talking quickly at the same time
  • An imaginary character mentioned once to frighten Oscar Shapely named "Bugs Dooley."

Legend has it that Gable had a profound effect on men's fashion, thanks to a scene in this movie. As he is undressing for bed, he takes off his shirt to reveal that he is bare-chested. Sales of men's undershirts across the country allegedly suffered a noticeable decline for a period following this movie.

It Happened One Night is considered to be the first of the great "screwball comedies" of the 1930s, which usually centered around a couple getting into hapless situations, and falling in love as a result.

This film was nominated for five Oscars (all the major ones) and won all five. This feat would not be repeated again until One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

  • Best Picture - Harry Cohn, producer
  • Best Actor in a Leading Role - Clark Gable
  • Best Actress in a Leading Role - Claudette Colbert
  • Best Director - Frank Capra
  • Best Writing, Adaptation - Robert Riskin

The film has also been selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry.

Films in various languages have been inspired by the movie and this movie has been remade many times.Two Hindi movies, 1. Chori Chori (starring Raj Kapoor, Nargis Dutt) and 2. Dil hai Ki maanta nahin( starring Aamir Khan, Pooja bhatt, Directed by Mahesh bahtt) were based on the same story.
