My Man Godfrey - 1936
My Man Godfrey - Released September 6, 1936. Directed by Gregory La Cava
Probably the gold standard in screwball comedies, My Man Godfrey contains just about every element usually associated with the genre: the "insane" rich, depression-era poverty, and the travails of getting and holding a job.
A rich vein of warm humanity powers this story of a bitter, upper-class son of Boston privilege (Powell, not so dapper with whiskers and ragged clothing) who ends up a bum living on a trash heap with other bums, gets adopted by a screwy young woman (Carole Lombard) who wants a "protege" like any proper wealthy woman of her class, and so he is brought in as the butler for her whole family.
