Irene (Carole Lombard): Can you butle?
Godfrey (William Powell): Butle?
Irene: Yes, we’re fresh out of butlers. The one we had left this morning.
In Gregory La Cava’s My Man Godfrey (1936), Carole Lombard plays Irene, a Park Avenue heiress who wants what she wants when she wants it. She finds Godfrey (William Powell), a “forgotten man” in a homeless settlement during a scavenger hunt, and hires him to butle for her idle rich family. Lombard is an incredible comedic performer, making her character as ridiculous as she has to be without falling into the ridicule. Powell’s wry cynicism and polished charm and wit are her perfect counterpart. And they both embody elegance and class. But, as Roger Ebert said, perhaps „the true style of this film lies in how gently it offers its moments of genius”.
