A remake of the 1940 film The Shop Around the Corner (1940) starring James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan. The original film involved two employees at a leather goods shop in Budapest. (In the source play it was a perfumerie). Other incarnations were "In the Good Old Summer Time" (music store), and "She Loves Me" (parfumerie). They could not stand each other at work, but were unknowingly falling in love through the mail as anonymous pen pals. See more »
When Frank is typing on his new typewriter and calls Kathleen a "lone reed", the carriage stops halfway as he is typing the second line and does not move even though Frank is still typing. See more »
This was an all right movie, but can I make just one little observation? If the movie is trying to make a social statement about big book chains with no personality (like Hank's Fox Books) greedily driving the little stores with charm (like Ryan's Shop around the Corner) out of business, how is it that the filmmakers chose to put every other scene in a Starbucks? Starbucks has undoubtedly forced more little shops out of business that any big book chain has.
This doesn't mean that it's not an enjoyabe movie. But it takes something away from Meg's righteous indignation when she woefully closes the bookstore and then goes to suck down a Mochacino.
