Screwball month continues with a look at Gregory la Cava’s My Man Godfrey. Based on the novel and co-written by Eric Hatch, the film stars William Powell as the titular Godfrey. He’s a forgotten man, living in a Hooverville in New York City where he’s picked up by a bunch of swells out on a scavenger hunt. Bringing in a forgotten man will net a lot of points and help Irene Bullock (Carole Lombard) win the game. In return, she hires Godfrey as a butler to the wacky Bullock family. And, of course, hilarity ensues...
Kat Ellinger and Maurice Bursztynski join Mike to discuss the original adaptation as well as the 1957 version with David Niven and June Allyson.
