Story | Dec 1, 2014 | 9:22 PMThanks to the popularity of “Mr. Deeds Goes to Town,” “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” and “It's a Wonderful Life,” few viewers remember that filmmaker Frank Capra arose from what was then a “minor” studio, Columbia Pictures, taking Columbia along with him. The central component of what we now refer to as Sony Pictures, Columbia was a Poverty Row outfit that had the good luck (or good taste) to hire Capra and spotlight his work. The transition stretched out almost a decade, but the pivotal film was “It Happened One Night,” which won all five of the biggest Oscars — Picture, Director, Screenplay, Actor and Actress — at a time when the studio had barely been nominated before. (And those few nominations were for a Capra film.)
