Shop Around The Corner (1940)
Stars James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan, etc.
So I discovered after watching You've Got Mail, that it was connected to a few other movies. Including Shop Around the Corner (1940). I had never heard of The Shop Around the Corner. So I was curious about it. Fortunately, it was available on YouTube. And I found it very interesting. It really has quite a different feel to it. It's not as comical as In The Good Old Summertime. Not as over-the-top. Not as ridiculous. (Even though some of the ridiculousness is endearing. In small doses.) It's definitely a more serious, more substantive film. I found this black and white film to be charming and wonderful. I loved Jimmy Stewart in this role! It was just about perfect. I think I definitely prefer this one to the musical starring Judy Garland. And I prefer it to You've Got Mail too. I would definitely recommend this movie!
