The Shop Around the Corner

The Shop Around the Corner is a 1940 American romantic comedy-drama film produced and directed by Ernst Lubitsch and starring Margaret Sullavan, James Stewart and Frank Morgan. The supporting cast included Joseph Schildkraut, Sara Haden, Felix Bressart, and William Tracy. It is widely regarded as perhaps the finest romantic comedy in American cinema and has served as a model to which all subsequent romcoms are to some extent indebted. The wit and deftness of Lubitch’s direction, a pitch-perfect screenplay and impeccable performances by its seasoned cast all combine to create a work that is moving, funny and heartwarming.
