There are worse things than spending a Saturday afternoon watching My Man Godfrey. Terrence Rafferty gives Carole Lombard her due. If I had my druthers, though, I’d ask him to spend more time on Hands Across the Table and To Be Or Not To Be. It occurred to me yesterday: Judd Apatow might be the only director who could do something with Lombard (and she’d certainly curse, which she did, uninhibitedly and gleefully), but I’m not sure her male costars would be up to the task.

One thought on “

  1. Godfrey is all-time Top 10 for me, just about the funniest movie I’ve ever seen give or take Duck Soup or Pootie Tang. I must, must see more Lombard.
