Summary
  • A scatterbrained socialite hires a vagrant as a family butler ... but there's more to Godfrey than meets the eye
  • Irene, an eccentric, wealthy Manhattanite, wins a society-ball scavenger hunt after finding a "forgotten man"-- an apparent down-and-out drifter-- at a dump. She gives him work as the family butler and soon falls head over heels for him. Her attempts to both woo Godfrey and indoctrinate him in the household's dysfunction make for a string of madcap high jinks
