My Man Godfrey

Gregory La Cava, 1935, bw (8.1*)
Fun and lovable screwball comedy starts with rich girl Carole Lombard, in perhaps her best film, going on a scavenger hunt with her aristocratic friends, when she finds street bum William Powell (of the Thin Man Series), whom she brings home to find that he's a well-mannered gentleman with a heart of gold, so she hires him as a butler. Original and unexpected 30's comedy that is the type that makes us say "they don't make comedies like this any more".

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
