When your head is ringing and your heart is singing

To balance out the reckless reverie that will no doubt take place for most of you on New Year's Eve here is my latest movie pick, the sober comedy My Man Godfrey. Starring one of my favorite old movie gents, William Powell, the film starts with a wild party game where ditsy socialite (Carole Lombard) brings back derelict Godfrey to win the game and ends the night hiring him as her bizarre family's new butler. While coping with this eccentric rich family's whims might be enough to show that nothing about Godfrey is ordinary, his mysterious past adds to his character's intriguing persona.
