31 Day Film Challenge – Day 28: The Perfect Date Film

The Shop Around The Corner (1940, D: Ernst Lubitsch, W: Ben Hecht, Samson Raphaelson)

The Shop Around the Corner

Jimmy Stewart and Margaret Sullivan are co-workers at a shop in Budapest who detest each other, but, unknowingly, are also falling deeply in love through anonymous letters in this brilliant, nuanced and funny classic. It’s a perfect romantic film for a first date, full of charm, as long as you can hold it together at the end. Yes, it was remade as You’ve Got Mail.
