25 Days of Holiday Classics: The Shop Around the Corner: Day 6

The Shop Around the Corner (1940) is a great Christmas movie. Two employees, Alfred Kralik (James Stewart) and Klara Novak (Margaret Sullavan), working at a gift shop have an extreme dislike for each other. Unbeknownst to both of them, they are actually in love with each other, but they don't even know it; they have been sending letters back and forth to each other and have fallen in love by being each other's secret pen pal. It's funny to watch the two slowly uncover the truth about their feelings for one another. Do yourself a favor and watch this movie.

Yes, this film highly influenced You've Got Mail (1998). I like that movie as well, but not as much as this one.

Aw, I love this movie. Jimmy and Margaret are so cute and Frank Morgan is great.

Jimmy and Margaret are cute, aren't they? Frank Morgan is always awesome, especially because he's also the Wizard of Oz.

I have seen it only once and I did enjoy it, and would like to watch it again as its been a while

It really is a good one. Perfect time to watch it, too. I'm going to be watching it soon. I've been so busy at work though. I should be sleeping now, but I'll probably just wait until this weekend to catch up. I love to sleep in, but I hate to go to sleep, especially when it isn't even midnight yet for me!
