My Man Godfrey is one of my all-time favorite movies, and it was the one shown last night to my classic film Meet Up. I'd never seen it on the big screen or with a group. The print was sharp and wonderful -- I could actually see that little half-moon scar that Lombard was so self-conscious about!
There's a woman in our group -- Rebecca -- who I thought had real friend potential and was disappointed by how annoyed she was with Lombard. Screwball heroines are supposed to be silly! (And cagey-smart and beautiful and very well dressed.) Oh well, I forgive her.
Spent more time with Martha. Found out she's 60, with a 41 year old daughter, and she longs to be a grandmother. Also, like me she lost her mother recently and commented on how high-spirited her mom was. "She was the most beautiful woman at her funeral." I found that comment very touching.
