The Shop Around the Corner
He and Margaret Sullavan are Alfred Kralik and Klara Novak, bickering co-workers at a department store. Unbeknown to both of them, they're pen pals falling in love with each other.
I'm not a fan of romance movies, but I'm a sucker for the old ones. I like the old ones because they weren't forced like the current ones; they focus on the slow-burning passion between the two lovers.
Stewart, as usual, had me smiling from his performance. The Shop Around the Corner is one of the sweetest movies I've seen. Like It's a Wonderful Life and Harvey before it, I was smiling from ear to ear from the ending.
My Rating: *****
