Yesterday I looked at the early years of the Great Depression. Today's movie is set at the height of the depression, in 1936. Typical of the era, My Man Godfrey is screwball comedy starring William Powell and Carol Lombard, a light-hearted love story about a man who makes good and a couple who fall in love - just the sort of movie to cheer people up.
