Time Out says

Heartless screwball classic, directed with clinical glee by the still undervalued La Cava and scripted by the mysterious Morrie Ryskind, who began with the Marx Brothers and later drifted into weepies and right wing politics. Godfrey (Powell) is the high-minded tramp found during a society 'scavenger hunt' and led back by the more than lovely Lombard into her household, full of profligate madcaps who duly become a little more civilised. The film has lost some of its allure over the years, but it's still streets and streets ahead of the addled whimsy favoured by latter-day Hollywood.
