The Shop Around the Corner
Monday, December 10th at 7:00pm
One of Ernst Lubitsch's most charming and romantic films, this 1940 comic romance finds James Stewart (Vertigo, It'sA Wonderful Life) working in a small shop in Budapest and longing for a girl to call his own.
He unwittingly falls in love with his coworker-played to perfection by Margaret Sullavan-as pen pals, but the only problem: they can't stand each other in person. The beguiling nature of the mistaken identity formula that influenced countless films is done to perfection here, and the wry combativeness and delightful banter between the two leads makes this a very special film.
