Great movies come along so infrequently. "My Man Godfrey" was made in 1939 with William Powell and Carol Lombard. Both are wonderful in the movie. I have read so many movie reviewers about "My Man Godfrey" and it is universally loved. Everyone involved with the movie did a superior job working together to bring such a fine film together. I thought it was William Powell's best film performance. You will see him in a totally different light from such hits as "The Thin Man". I hope you and your family get the opportunity to watch such a fine film. Thanks for reading the above. As always, let me know here how you liked the film.
P.S. Thanks to brendacarlson, LadySugar, and Keogh for their reviews of "My Man Godfrey". They all gave it Five Stars and have wonderful comments on the movie.

A marvelously funny comedy that manages to also be a social commentary on the Depression. Powell has terrific chemistry with both Carole Lombard (his ex wife) and Gail Patrick, playing a tramp hired as a butler for a decidedly eccentric family. The film is smart and wonderfully paced, and deserves its status as a true classic.

A wonderful 'depression era' screwball comedy carried by the always funny William Powell, Carole Lombard and a great supporting cast.

A near-perfect film; witty and urbane. Please watch in black-and-white - the colourized version undermines the beautifully composed shots, and the careful use of fabrics and chrome to add reflection and contrast to the picture.
