Cute Happy Movie

4 years, 1 month ago at Dec 31 21:22
James Stewart as cute and adorable as always (perhaps a lil more grumpy) and some funny situations. The script skips the main characters conflict nearly altogether but I guess that´s the way the movies were made back then.

It´s a happy movie to watch.

The Other Jimmy Stewart Christmas Movie

The Shop Around the Corner was the first Ernst Lubitsch film I saw, and as soon as the characters started interacting with each other I instantly knew this was a guy who knew how to handle dialogue, in what is referred to as the so called ‘Lubitsch Touch’. With such levels of subtly, this is the kind of movie that needs to be watched multiple times, and gets better every time you do so. Often ... read more

The Other Jimmy Stewart Christmas Movie

“The Shop Around the Corner was the first Ernst Lubitsch film I saw, and as soon as the characters started interacting with each other I instantly knew this was a guy who knew how to handle dialogue, in what is referred to as the so called ‘Lubitsch Touch’. With such levels of subtly, this is the kind of movie that needs to be watched multiple times, and gets better every time you do so. Often there will be a verbal joke, unaware it even is a joke and it will take a few seconds to catch onto it. Most of Lubitsch’s films where set in Europe as this was where he was from. The shop of Shop Around the Corner is in Budapest, Hungary. The world this movie is set was on the brink of destruction in 1940, but there is no mention of this in the film. Just like the how the film harkens back to a” read more
