William Powell was one of the 1930’s best Actors. With the always suave, effortlessly funny Powell in a picture you know it was going to be good. Mostly known for his role in the movie “Thin Man” Powell I think is his best as the reverese pygmalion story of Godfrey. A tramp known throughout the twon who becomes the suave and dashing debonior gentleman. Powell provides the film’s conscience and its model of decency. One of the great “screwball” comedies, William Powell is great.
