As my neighbor would say, never in all my born days!

And to think it all started with a scavenger hunt! 🙂 That’s right! 🙂 I do believe this is called, “screwball comedy.” I have seen a few crazy, classic movies and I do mean really crazy . . .

And! My Man Godfrey is now in my list of favorite crazy classics! Irene (Carole Lombard) brings Godfrey (William Powell) home, from the dump, to her rich family as their new butler. Well, crazy quickly turns insane. I loved it. It is hilarious!

A hearty shoutout to R J Nello for recommending this film to me!
