My Man Godfrey (1936) – 96 minutes
While on a scavenger hunt, in search of a “forgotten man,” eccentric socialite Irene Bullock (Carole Lombard) and her spoiled sister Cornelia come upon a homeless man, Godfrey “Smith” Parke (William Powell), who seems to fit the bill. Irene hires Godfrey to be the family’s butler, and he soon teaches them that money isn’t everything. Marvelously funny with excellent performances by the entire cast, My Man Godfrey is one of the great screwball comedies of the 1930s. In 1999, the film was deemed "culturally significant" by the United States Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.
