Watch My Man Godfrey - Alternative Versions.
I don't want to be one of those "they don't make 'em like they used to"
people, but I just can't help it when it comes to comedy. We've lost that
talent completely, it seems. I can't think of any really great comedies of
the past ten years. The golden age for film comedy was the mid 1930s to the
mid 1940s (at least for the talkies; silent comedies were a totally
different art form). This is also the period of the screwball comedy. My
Godfrey was one of the first screwball comedies. Films such as Bringing Up
Baby and The Lady Eve perfected the form, but My Man Godfrey is nearly as
perfect. It isn't quite as funny as Bringing Up Baby nor is it as
emotionally resonant as The Lady Eve, but it is funny, it has depression
social commentary (its main theme is identical to Preston Sturges'
Sullivan's Travels, beating it by 6 years), and the script is marvelous.
finale is as good as any other comic finale, including the last scene of
Some Like it Hot.
The actors are also in top form. William Powell is the straight man, and he
plays it very well. All the rest are as nutty as ever. Carole Lombard
probably gives her greatest performance here (I suppose I shouldn't say
since I've only seen her in one other film; I can only guess at this since
it is one of the funniest performances of film history). Gail Patrick is
perfectly devious as Lombard's conniving sister. Eugene Pallette is great
their father. Alice Brady, though, steals the show as their mother, a total
fruit cake whose protoge, Carlo (Mischa Auer) does nothing but eat the
household's food and pound the same couple of notes on their piano. And
for cameos by MGM regulars Franklin Pangborn and Grady Sutton.
