A Touch of Lubitsch
United States | 1940 | Ernst Lubitsch
James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan star in one of Lubitsch’s most beloved masterpieces, about two co-workers in a Budapest shop who don’t realize that they are secret lonely hearts pen pals. If this plotline sounds familiar, it’s because it was reworked in 1998’s You’ve Got Mail. With Frank Morgan. “I think I was never as good as in Shop Around the Corner. Never did I make a picture in which the atmosphere and the characters were truer than in this picture.” –Ernst Lubitsch.
