allutouch asked: William Powell was better in his one role as My Man Godfrey, or as all of the watered down Thin Man's?!? Now fight!
Oh! You dirty son of a bitch! I finally get someone to ask me something, and it’s THIS?!
Fine. They’re completely different roles. In My Man Godfrey, Powell plays it straight against the family he’s buttling for. In the Thin Man series (which I would hardly call watered down…DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE KILLED IN THOSE MOVIES?!) he’s the comedic star, and everyone else works to catch up. If I have to choose, it’s Nick Charles all day, every day. Godfrey Park is an amazing performance, but this question was about the roles. Now, is My Man Godfrey better than the Thin Man movies? Yes, I think so. But because of the ensemble that supports Powell. That being said, I’ll take Myrna Loy over Carole Lombard any day.
Michael,one day I will dance on your grave. Tap dance, I think. I don’t know how to tap dance but I’ll take a couple of lessons just so I know the basics when I dance over your bones, you film questioning bastard!
