My Man Godfrey (1936)

My Man Godfrey (1936)

Stars William Powell, Carole Lombard, Jean Dixon, Gail Patrick, etc.

Wow! I really, really loved this one. It was actually a recommendation from my brother-in-law. So it was a great surprise to discover a new-favorite-from-the-thirties. What is it about? It's about a "forgotten man" Godfrey "Smith" who goes from living at the city dump to being a working man, a butler for the very rich, but very eccentric Bullock family. One of the daughters, Irene, falls madly in love with Godfrey, and would ignore all the obstacles society might place in their way if they were to try to wed, but Godfrey is a man with a few secrets and he is playing hard to get. Will she get her man in the end?
