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
Platinum blonde by Frank Capra( Visual )

14 editions published between 1931 and 2014 in English and German and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the film that fueled her legendary career, Jean Harlow stars in this romantic comedy directed by Academy Award winner Frank Capra. Written to showcase Harlow's talent, looks and charm, Platinum Blonde is a glorious spoof of the newspaper business in New York City during the Depression. Ann Schuyler, a wealthy socialite, meets reporter Stew Smith and the two fall madly in love. The comedy begins as she tries to transform him from a ruffian newsman into a convincing gentleman. Stew, who is quick with wisecracks, is slow to realize the dangers of being a kept man. At first, he likes the idle life of the rich, but there's trouble in paradise. Soon this Cinderella Man turns the social register upside down with his mocking repartee. To his rescue is Gallagher, a sympathetic friend and co-worker at the newspaper. She comforts and consoles Stew and, in classic Capra style, helps him right into her own arms.--Container
