Review of My Man Godfrey


My Man Godfrey was directed by Gregory La Cava and was an American screwball comedy film made in 1936.

In 1957, the film was remade with David Niven and June Allyson in the starring roles where as in the 1936 version they were Carole Lombard and William Powell. 

The story involves a high socialite, ( Irene Bullock ), who hires a derelict to be her family’s butler when much to his ( Godfrey “Smith” Parke ), she falls in love with him. 

It’s an interesting dynamic as years earlier William Powell and Carole Lombard were actually married in real life.
