Trying to find a comedy like "My Man Godfrey"


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a movie that is similar to "My Man Godfrey". It starts with a man who has either an old beat-up car that breaks down or he's in an accident. He walks to the nearest house, which is a mansion, and is given work (butler or chauffeur). The family is wealthy and a bit screwball (or the mother certainly is). He and the daughter fall in love, of course. "My Man Godfrey" sounded so familiar that I thought it was it.


Does anyone know what this movie is? I think it was an early to mid 30's movie and the male actor (I think) became very successful.

Ironically, Universal wanted Constance Bennett to play Irene Bullock in "Godfrey," but William Powell -- well aware of Connie's flighty, mercurial nature -- rejected the casting and suggested Universal get his ex-wife on loanout from Paramount. You know the rest.
