    This is not my first or second viewing of this great film. It seems sort of fitting these days with our depression and men (and women) who just need a job to make the difference in their lives!
    We desperately need several thousand Godfreys now!

    This “screwball” comedy is weak gruel today, with its message of high-school level social justice. Carole Lombard is pretty much wasted with a script that makes her look a fool rather than a comic figure. I know: times change.

    More of the great films of the 1930′s should be shown again.

    These films are just what we need these days. Keep it up Thirteen.
