A story about this — 6 years ago
My Man Godfrey is of course a classic in American cinema. The Criterion Collection edition is worth seeking out even if you’ve already seen this film. Listening to the excellent commentary by historian Bob Gilpin is like getting a miniature lesson in film literacy. Also included is an audio recording (with slide show) of the Lux Radio Theater adaptation of the story, which like the movie starred William Powell and Carole Lombard. Last but not least, there is a brief montage of outtakes full of flubs and salty language (the saltiest from Lombard!).
