My Man Godfrey

9 January 2023 at 7:00 pm - 8:35 pm

Part of our Screwball Comedy Series with Fred Fuchs

Emerging in the 1930s, Screwball Comedies were a wild new strain of fast-talking farces involving battles of the sexes and a world forever on the brink of chaos. We’ve curated five hilarious films that exemplify the genre.

We’ll delve into what makes a great Screwball Comedy, the production, artists, and story of each film.

Fred Fuchs

A successful Hollywood film producer for years, Fred is the founder and Chair of the Board of the Westdale Cinema Group.

Watch the movie and stay for a talk and Q&A with Hollywood Producer Fred Fuchs.

Romantic Comedy

Directed by Gregory La Cava

Starring William Powell, & Carole Lombard

Nominated for six Academy Awards

Fifth Avenue socialite Irene Bullock needs a “forgotten man” to win a scavenger hunt, and no one fits that description more than Godfrey Park, who resides in a dump by the East River. Irene hires Godfrey as a servant for her riotously unhinged family, to the chagrin of her spoiled sister, Cornelia, who tries her best to get Godfrey fired. As Irene falls for her new butler, Godfrey turns the tables and teaches the frivolous Bullocks a lesson or two.
