GREG PROOPS FILM CLUB: My Man Godfrey

Cinefamily

611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA

7:30pm

Greg Proops (one of the most mind-warpingly quick-draw improv comics on earth) records his monthly Film Club podcast live — and then it’s time for one of the most screwy of all screwball comedies from the Thirties. Greg sez: “In this year of discord we celebrate the holidays with an anti-rich people movie. My Man Godfrey is one picture that can justly be described as delightful. The debonair William Powell is homeless (that alone was a big laugh, for he also played the distinctly upscale detective The Thin Man) when two rich, shallow sisters (the fabulous Carole Lombard and the feisty Gail Patrick) on a scavenger hunt convince him to come uptown and be gaped at by callous sophisticates for five bucks. When he does, he’s disgusted by how mindless and insipid the rich are; the family is a living trainwreck of abuse and eccentricities. Horses in the living room, a live-in gigolo and unswerving vapidity. This movie anticipates the nation-state of Kardashia, and pays off big time. Let’s have a fun revolution. Forget the guillotines. Brandish some wit. Join us, you will, loves.”

Dir. Gregory La Cava, 1936, 35mm, 93 min.

THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE

Egyptian Theatre

6712 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028

7:30pm

Director Ronald Neame and producer Irwin Allen’s literally titanic disaster epic features a boatload of acting talent - Gene Hackman, Ernest Borgnine, Red Buttons, Carol Lynley, Jack Albertson, Roddy McDowall, Stella Stevens and more - all doing their best to survive the hellish inferno of capsized ocean liner the S.S. Poseidon. Special kudos to Shelley Winters for her unforgettably gutsy performance, and to special effects expert L.B. Abbott and stunt coordinator Paul Stader for some of the most spectacular disaster scenes in movie history, including the famous upside-down ballroom.
