  My Man Godfrey () Swing Time () The Hurricane () Ginger Rogers and the (Hollywood) Proletarian Imaginary, – John Ford, From Radical Critique to the White Garrison State, – this book impels us to reflect on the limits of the current model of Brazilian : Graham Cassano. Fifth Avenue socialite Irene Bullock needs a "forgotten man" to win a scavenger hunt, and no one is more forgotten than Godfrey Park, who resides in a dump by the East River. Irene hires Godfrey as a servant for her riotously unhinged family, to the chagrin of her spoiled sister, Cornelia, who tries her best to get Godfrey fired. As Irene falls for her new butler, Godfrey 4/5(7K).

While William Powell’s eponymous butler in My Man Godfrey is characterised as the “forgotten man”, perhaps the film’s director, Gregory La Cava () might more appropriately merit this title. For someone attached to two films thought by many to epitomise the screwball comedy genre – My Man Godfrey and Stage Door () – he has [ ].   A landmark screwball comedy from Hollywood's golden age, My Man Godfrey follows the madcap antics of a ditzy debutante (Carole Lombard) who stumbles upon a "forgotten man" (William Powell) at the.

The rest is a domestic comedy as Godfrey -- who unbeknownst to anyone was once as rich as they are -- expertly wrangles their rowdy homelife and fends off the advances of Irene, who's fallen madly in love with him. Funny, ironic, wry -- I love this book. If my elderly paperback weren't in such fragile shape, I'd read it more often/5(2). My Man Godfrey is one of the top Screwball Comedies of all time- a story of a wealthy New York family in the 's that brings in Godfrey, a destitute and "Forgotten Man" as their butler.
