My Man Godfrey
As a scatterbrained heiress during the Depression, Carole Lombard finds a dashing homeless man as part of a scavenger hunt and hires him as butler for her flaky family (she has a crush). You laugh at the screwball comedy, swoon at the enchanting romance, and grow to appreciate wise and sane Godfrey (William Powell). As he demonstrates the rewards of helping your neighbor, he might as well be speaking to our own hard times.
