My Man Godfrey (1936) Tuesday, February 3rd, 7 PM @ Darkside Cinema

Starring William Powell (The Thin Man series, Life With Father) and Carole Lombard (Nothing Sacred, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, To Be or Not to Be), directed by Gregory La Cava (Stage Door, 5th Avenue Girl) from the novel by Eric Hatch (Topper).  MyManGodfreyPosterArtThis frothy and madcap romantic comedy is one of the most beloved of all time, and the chemistry between Lombard and Powell should get most of the credit for that.  This movie was so popular they remade it in 1952 with the only other actor who looked half as buttlery as Powell, a one David Niven.  But this original version is undoubtedly superior and has some covert class struggle commentary hidden up its sleeve.  This is the 2nd CMNYK appearance for both Powell and Lombard; we previously saw him in Life With Father on 9/23/14 and her in Nothing Sacred on 10/28/14. Don’t miss this legendary romantic duo next week at CMNYK!
