Based on the 1935 novel by Eric Hatch. A zany New York socialite hires Godfrey, a homeless man she meets on the street, to be her family butler—but soon discovers there's more to Godfrey than meets the eye. A definitive classic of the screwball genre which also manages to present an eloquent commentary on class and love in Depression-era America.

Set in New York.
