A landmark screwball comedy from Hollywood’s golden age, My Man Godfrey follows the madcap antics of a ditzy debutante (Carole Lombard) who stumbles upon a “forgotten man” (William Powell) at the city dump. Determined to help Godfrey out, she offers him work in her household and he soon becomes the perfect butler for her eccentric family. As the family’s antics grow increasingly more absurd, it is only a matter of time before Godfrey’s secret past is revealed. Featuring brilliant comedic performances by Carole Lombard and William Powell along with Mischa Auer and Alice Brady, this timeless comedy classic was the first film ever to receive Academy Award® nominations in all four acting categories.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: A class satire in a class of its own, My Man Godfrey's screwball comedy is as sharp as the social commentary is biting.
