    • Marjorie Baumgarten

      Hugely popular in its day, this is witty romantic comedy with barbed social commentary. ( Read More )
    • Emanuel Levy

      One of the most enchanting and poignant screwball comedies of all time, La Cavas zany film reflects the zeitgeist of the Depression and is supremely acted by William Powell, Carol Lombard and the rest of the ensemble. ( Read More )
    • The film has lost some of its allure over the years, but its still streets and streets ahead of the addled whimsy favoured by latter day Hollywood. ( Read More )
    • My Man Godfrey emerges with that evasive quality that is not skillful playing, writing or direction, but something that mysteriously adds itself to these things, and makes a tip top picture. ( Read More )
