My Man Godfrey is a delightful comedy made in 1937, stars The Thin Man's, William Powell and Carole Lombard.
I just had pleasure of seeing this film for the first time the other day and was absolutely in love with the characters and the way the film can pull off being soo incredibly nutty, but i guess that is the charm of Screwball Comedies.
William Powell plays Godfrey Smith/Park the "forgotten man" living in a New York City dump. Godfrey had lost his fortune due to the economic depression. Until one night the dizzy but lovely Irene Bullock played by Carole Lombard comes across him and decidedly falls head over heels for Godfrey. He hires him as The Bullocks family butler. He "butles" with the nut bar family for over a year and eventually helps the family out with their financial woes. the film is very easy to watch and never gets dull.
