Editorial Reviews

My Man Godfrey is one of the top Screwball Comedies of all time. The story of a wealthy New York family in the 1930's that brings in Godfrey, a destitute and Forgotten Man as their butler. William Powell plays the leading role brilliantly, and gives the family a madcap ride they will never forget. My Man Godfrey was the first film to receive Oscar® nominations in all four acting categories, including stunning performances by William Powell and Carole Lombard. Presented in color for the first time and beautifully restored, this is the definitive DVD edition of My Man Godfrey.

At last, a good clean copy of this wonderful screwball romantic comedy! Much superior to the Hollywood Classics DVD which was washed-out and missing a key scene.
Well, this is just one of the best of the half-dozen or so top screwball comedies of the 30's. A dream cast plays it light and loose, with the real world of Depression-era America as a backdrop to a love story and a light lesson in responsibility, both to one's friends & family, to one's society, and to one's better nature.
And what a cast. William Powell is the epitome of debonair (what a quaint term: NO ONE is debonair anymore, alas)with one of the best comedic touches and timing in the business. Opposite Powell is Carole Lombard, young, adorable, beautiful and screwy and a perfect foil for Powell's smooth decorum. The supporting cast is first rate: Eugene Pallete the long-suffering businessman/husband; Gail Patrick, the beautiful but bitchy Cornelia; Mischa Auer's deadbeat Carlo; Alice Brady's clueless mother; Jean Dixon's wisecracking maid & Alan Mowbry as the rich & useless but decent Tommy Gray.
Enjoy comedy played by pros to a fare-thee-well. It's all attitude and delivery and body english and it is great! They can't make them like this anymore. Style and class.
The extras are quite good with a nice commentary track by Bob Gilpin and some hysterical outtakes (yes, they cussed back then too!). The print is pretty much clean and a vast improvement over previous editions.

For those of you lucky enough to know, or who propose to get to know, this flick, you've come to the right place. Amazon sells two DVD versions of My Man Godfrey. I've seen both, as well as the VHS, and this one, the least expensive, from a company called Platinum, is by far the best quality. The other DVD, by Madacy Entertainment, is a fiasco based on a terrible print that happens to also be missing a crucial scene. Why Amazon continues to sell it, I don't know.

The "First Time In Color" cover of MY MAN GODFREY from the Legend company is the very BEST-----better than the Criterion version, believe it or not---in part, because on Legend you choose to watch color or black and white. In fact, the Legend version is just tremendous and even the color version is miles ahead of the old colorization processes of the 1980s. But you do not see this information ANYWHERE except at the very end because Amazon has loaded up all these ancient and out of date reviews of OTHER PRODUCTS---not the one listed and shown in the picture. It is terrible confusing. Luckily, I did order a copy of the Legend version with color and B&W and was thrilled, but you might never figure it out based on the utterly confusing mess of reviews of all sorts of different versions mushed together in the same place here.__________
I had seen this film at least twice over the years and thought it pretty good but came across this 2005 remastered version from LEGEND films. I was astonished. It is wonderfully crisp and fresh in it appearance and tripled my appreciation of it. Also, I am not one of those hidebound purists who think computer colorization is an absolute horror. Done well---and this one is done VERY well indeed--it can add a new freshness and insight to its watching. (Granted, it is not the same work of art of its original creators, but one can choose freely between the two versions, as it should be.) I found that by tweaking the color manually and altering the brightness and contrast slightly, with a hint greater saturation, one can get a superb if just slightly antiquey color. Not exactly full Technicolor (it never was--originally filmed in black and white) but a surprisingly great color experience.

If you're reading this review, you know that this is one of the greatest screwball comedies ever to come out of Hollywood, so we'll concentrate on the bargain price of the Legend Films release of this wonderful movie.

Since the beginning of DVDs, the only copy worth owning of My Man Godfrey was the very pricey Criterion copy. Not all movie-loving folks can feel comfortable divying up 35 bucks and more for their favorite films. So like myself, they were disappointed time-and-again by spending hard-earned cash on washed out, horrible public domain DVD prints, all the while wanting to own a nice, clean, audible copy of My Man Godfrey.

Over the past few years, Legend Films has been releasing classic black-and-white films in colorized versions (this will always gall movie purists; I too have always sworn off colorized black-and-white films).

On the flip side of the coin, Legend Films deserves a huge thumbs-up! for releasing BOTH the original Black-and-White version, as well as the Colorized print, of these classic movies. And Legend Films is not just Colorizing films, they are restoring them, as well. What this means for movie hungry fans like you and I, is that we are given a beautiful, almost pristine Black-and White print of some of our favorite movies at very reasonable prices, often much less than even the Hollywood studio companies are releasing on DVD. I've seen the Criterion version of My Man Godfrey, and yes, it is beautiful - I even own several Criterion films that I felt I couldn't live without - and I have to say that I see no real difference in the quality of the Black-and-White print included on the Legend Films version, versus the Criterion print. What is the difference, then, between a 35 dollar DVD from Criterion, and a $9.

Which Studio Has Put Out the Clearest Picture Version of "Godfrey"?
The edition with the colourised version (released by Fox) has a very clean print. The disc also includes the original B&W version.
