The Shop Around the Corner
A Modern-Feeling Fun Romantic Comedy
Before any Nora Ephron novel, there was The Shop Around the Corner, a film which uses the device of mistaken identity to its fullest and produces a heart-warming and very funny romantic comedy. Jimmy Stewart and Margaret Sullivan play against each other perfectly and the film has a fun cast of colorful supporting characters. The witty script holds up today and the film ends on a triumphantly hilarious and smile-inducing note.
