    My Man Godfrey (Universal, 1936). Jumbo Lobby Card (14" X 17"). Comedy.
    A twist on the Cinderella story that has spoiled heiress Irene Bullock (Carole Lombard) finding educated hobo Godfrey (William Powell) living in the city dump, and hiring him as the new family butler. Godfrey isn't really a penniless bum, though, he's actually a blue-blood from a wealthy family who retreated from life after being jilted by a lover. As Godfrey becomes part of the Bullock household, he injects a dose of much-needed sanity into their chaotic lives, causing Irene to fall in love with him. One of the classic "screwball" comedies of the 1930s. Professionally restored, the card has a crease in the left side and each of the corners had been bent, there were two tears along the borders and chip at the upper left corner. Offered here is a rare jumbo lobby card from this classic film. Fine.
