Repertory Series ArchiveThe Lubitsch Touch

The Shop Around the Corner

Buy Tickets

(1940) dir Ernst Lubitsch w/Margaret Sullavan, James Stewart, Frank Morgan, Joseph Schidkraut [99 min]
Lubitsch’s follow up to NINOTCHKA is this sparkling romantic comedy which features a perfectly matched Jimmy Stewart and Margaret Sullavan as a pair of shop workers who despise one another but are unwittingly romancing each other via pen pal letters. Often imitated but never improved upon, THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER again benefits from Lubitsch’s progressive view of human relationships and unbeatable comedic instincts.
