One of the treasures of 1930s screwball comedy.

La Cava was famous for improvising his scenes; My Man Godfrey is the most brilliant, unbuttoned example. It's a champagne farce, sparkling and bubbling from the depths of the Depression. [08 Jun 2007, p.C9]

La Cava’s supple but cutting romantic comedy is one of the finest works of class-conscious comedy in Hollywood history.
