My Man Godfrey (1936) Considered the definitive screwball comedy by many, the plot centers on the actions of the wealthy and eccentric Bullock family. When one of the Bullock daughters (Carole Lombard) hires a “forgotten man” to be their new butler, things get interesting. The film features brilliant performances from Lombard and William Powell as Godfrey. It also features a brilliant supporting cast that includes Alice Brady, Eugene Pallette, Gail Patrick, Mischa Auer, and Jean Dixon. My Man Godfrey was the first to film to receive Academy Award nominations in all four acting categories. Also nominated for Academy Awards were director Gregory La Cava ("Stage Door", "Fifth Avenue Girl") and screenwriters Eric Hatch and Morrie Ryskind.
