My Man Godfrey (L’impareggiabile Godfrey) – USA 1936

Directed by: Gregory La Cava

Starring: Carole Lombard; William Powell; Gail Patrick; Alice Brady; Eugene Pallette; Jean Dixon; Mischa Auer.

Once Godfrey trouble was that nobody wanted him, now his trouble is that Irene Bullock wants him.

The Great Depression, a wealthy and crazy Park Avenue’s family and a “forgotten man”: the ingredient to make one of the funniest comedies ever, where La Cava, as he did in many of his films, looks with a critical eye to the “High Society”.

A related movie I like: Grease (1978) Directed by: Randal Kleiser. Starring: John Travolta; Olivia Newton-John; Stockard Channing; Jeff Conaway.

Un tempo il problema di Godfrey era che nessuno lo voleva. Ora il suo problema è che lo vuole Irene Bullock.

La Grande Depressione, una ricca e folle famiglia di Park Avenue ed un “uomo dimenticato”: gli ingredienti giusti per una delle più divertenti commedie di sempre con la quale La Cava, come in molti dei suoi film, getta uno sguardo critico sulla “buona società” della sua epoca.

Un film collegato che mi piace: Grease (1978) Diretto da: Randal Kleiser. Con: John Travolta; Olivia Newton-John; Stockard Channing; Jeff Conaway.
