SHOP AROUND THE CORNER, THE
"Close to perfection — one of the most beautifully acted and paced romantic comedies ever made in this country." — Pauline Kael. On a Hollywood back lot, Ernst Lubitsch recreates Budapest – at least the parts of it that can be seen out the window of Frank Morgan's gift shop, where James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan are two store clerks who have loathed each other from the day they met. But when Stewart answers Sullavan's personal ad from the newspaper's lonely-hearts column, they begin an anonymous love affair by mail, with the big reveal coming on Christmas Eve. DIR/PROD Ernst Lubitsch; SCR Samson Raphaelson, based on the play "Parfumerie" by Miklós László. U.S., 1940, b&w, 99 min. NOT RATED
