My Man Godfrey
A kooky socialite enjoys an elaborate party game, and gets more than she bargained for…
Dir Gregory La Cava
With Carole Lombard, William Powell, Alice Brady, Gail Patrick
Lombard is luminescent as Irene Bullock, a kooky socialite into elaborate party games (true of her real-life Hollywood persona, too). She needs to capture a ‘forgotten man’ in a scavenger hunt and so brings homeless drifter Godfrey (Powell) back to her family’s Fifth Avenue mansion. He then upends the household in unexpected ways.
