His Butler's Sister is a 1943 American romantic comedy film directed by Frank Borzage and starring Deanna Durbin.[3] The supporting cast includes Franchot Tone, Pat O'Brien, Akim Tamiroff, Evelyn Ankers and Hans Conried.[4] The film was nominated for an Oscar for Best Sound Recording (Bernard B. Brown).[5]


Ann Carter visits New York City to see her half-brother, and to try to start a music career. He works as a butler for Charles Gerard, a Broadway producer, so Ann gets a job working for him as a maid.

Durbin performs a notable medley of Russian folk songs including "Yamschtschick," "Kalitka" and "Two Guitars." (American Film Institute Catalog)



The film was announced in January 1943.[6] In April, Frank Borzage signed to direct and Pat O'Brien to star.[7] In May, Franchot Tone signed to play the male lead. The film was then known as My Girl Godfrey.[8] Durbin enjoyed working with Borzage.[9]
