One of Hollywood’s greatest screwball comedies, My Man Godfrey earns its distinct honor thanks to the talents of its stars Carole Lombard and William Powell. While playing in a scavenger hunt, socialite Irene Bullock (Lombard) meets down-on-his-luck Godfrey “Smith” Parke (Powell). After striking up a friendship with Godfrey, Irene offers him a job as the family butler. As Godfrey adjusts to his new role in life, Irene suddenly realizes she may be falling for her servant.
