Oh, I just saw "My Man Godfrey" for the first time the other week. Absolutely loved it. You are so right, Gary.
Carole Lombard was ever so cute in it as well.

I have collected many of the Powell/Loy films listed above and enjoyed every one of them. Powell's presence onscreen is that of a modern philosopher with a sympathetic and irrepressible sense of humor about humanity in general; Loy was that rarest of female screen creations, a sharply intelligent and adorable comedy foil, and the perfect companion and guide for Powell's "Nick Charles."
I also have numerous other films of Powell's which I'm sure many here have seen and enjoyed, all the way from "Lawyer Man" to "Mister Roberts." The one that really stands out for me however, is "My Man Godfrey." An amazing film triumph. It starts out as a screwball comedy and finalies as one of the most painless and effectively impressive commentaries on the great and terrible depression Hollywood was ever able to produce.

Its great when you hear of children or young folks getting into some of the old classic movies or stars. Most kids would probably dismiss the black n whites as "borrriiingg" considering all the technology we have today. Ive always taught my son to have a very open mind and not be a "follower of trend" just because its popular concerning music and other things. He's 20 yrs old, and I got a great kick when he became engrossed in watching Edward G. in "Brother Orchid" several weeks back and the fact that he thinks Bette Davis was brillant! So, I hear what youre saying, Kristine : )

Double Wedding is one of my favorites! It often gets overlooked because of The Thin Man movies, but I enjoy seeing William Powell playing a bit of a different part.

Watched Double Wedding last night! Love these two together. Especially when she asks him "Are you on dope?" LOL

Just a side note that you all might like to hear. I teach an acting class and a 10 year old girl told me last Monday that she had watched Song of The Thin Man! I got the biggest kick out of hearing her go on about how she liked it. Those movies truly reach across generations! Again, I just thought that you might like to hear about that. :)

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
