My Man Godfrey (1936) – July 20, 9:30pm
Carole Lombard and William Powell light up the screen in this Depression-era screwball comedy as a Park Avenue brat looking for a ‘forgotten man’ in a scavenger hunt.
TRIVIA NUGGET: Divorced only a few years before filming, William Powell suggested his ex-wife Carole Lombard for the part, explaining that his romance with Lombard mirrored those of the characters in the movie. The two would go on to both be nominated for Academy Awards for their performances.
