Michael Lehmann on

My Man Godfrey

Released 1936
Distributor Universal

The quintessential screwball comedy, Gregory LaCava’s wacky 1936 classic features Oscar-nominated Carole Lombard and real-life ex-hubby William Powell as a spoiled rich girl and her forgotten-man-turned butler. The ensemble cast is fabulous and the economic milieu is becoming all too recognizable.
