Welcome back folks to BoomerFilms™ !
I’m so glad you’re back for another Classic Comedy Movie !
This classic comedy is titled “My Man Godfrey” and hit the box offices in 1936. “My Man Godfrey” is a 1936 classic screwball comedy that stars William Powell and Carole Lombard. Directed by Gregory La Cava, this beloved film follows the story of a wealthy family who hire a homeless man as their butler.
The movie was an instant success upon its release and has continued to be admired over the years. William Powell plays the titular character with his signature suave charm while Lombard nails her comedic timing as Irene Bullock, the family’s daughter who takes an interest in Godfrey.
Together they make for great chemistry on screen as they navigate their changing dynamic from employer/employee to something more intimate.
The film is often praised for its social commentary about class divisions at the time, but it also entertains with plenty of wit and humor throughout its run time.
Now, enjoy this great classic “My Man Godfrey” !
