Adventure before dementia
Another older, more obscure film is My Man Godfrey. Whilst on a scavenger hunt for a high society party game Cornelia Bullock and her sister Irene (Carole Lombarde) find Godfrey (William Powell), a tramp living on the city dump. Godfrey takes a dislike to Cornelia and decides to help Irene win the hunt for a 'forgotten man'. Soon Irene persuades him to work for her family as the butler, without knowing his true identity. And I suppose you can guess who "saves" the whole family ... yes, the tramp turns out to be financial wizard.

I love Godfrey "the forgotten man" and all the crazy Bullocks. And most especially Carlo and his ape imitation.

Just watching those clips reminded me how amazing all of the characters were.
