SHOP AROUND THE CORNER, THE (1940) Title lobby card


[Los Angeles]: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, [1940]. Vintage original 11 x 14″ (25 x 32 cm.) lobby card. Rare title card displays vivid colors. Both top corners are chipped, minor creases repaired with brown tape on verso, tiny tear along top blank white margin, a one-inch (2.5 cm.) tear to right side blank white margin mended with archival paper. Very good+.

Delightful Ernst Lubitsch drama comedy which he directed and produced. The original script by Samson Raphaelson (with uncredited assist from Ben Hecht) was so popular that it was remade as the musical In the Good Old Summertime, the Broadway musical She Loves Me and the modern-day romantic comedy You’ve Got Mail. Two feuding store employees do not realize they are each other’s perfect pen-pal mates.
