However, Frank Capra made more than Christmas movies. His romantic comedies seemed to pair just the right actors and actresses for the stories that were written.

Frank Capra movies are true works of art. Scripts were well written, well cast, and well read. Many professionals described his directorial methods as legendary. The purpose of this page is to provide information about Frank Capra and his timeless 'cinemagic.'

Frank Capra And Romance
A box of dark chocolates, a smooth glass of wine, a movie about a smart chic who falls for a guy who wants to be her hero, and a sweetheart to cuddle and share it all with. "It Happened One Night" is a romantic comedy classic starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert. The best part about Frank Capra movies is that they are simply timeless in art.
What better way to say "I love you," than to share a box of chocolates and a Frank Capra movie about war and peace, desperation and hope, with a touch of humanity.
