I am huge fan of lists and not just writing my own but seeing lists made by others. With that being said, I was watching a particular YouTube video from a channel that create list videos. The title of the list is "Top Ten Romantic Holiday Movies". Number 10 is how this thread began, the 1998 film 'You've Got Mail'. I have seen said film and I can say I liked it, but I always knew it was inspired by 'The Shop Around the Corner' (1940). Most Classic Movie fans, especially those who love Romance know 'The Shop Around the Corner' had a musical younger sibling titled, 'In the Good Old Summertime'. Both films I love, but it made me think which I liked more. In all honesty if I had to choose a film to watch and it was between these two, I would go for 'The Shop Around the Corner'. I love the acting done by Jimmy Stewart and Margaret Sullivan, I find the twist of the store owner and his wife interesting. I can say I love musicals and 'In the Good Old Summertime' has some good numbers and the story is beautiful and well there is Judy Garland. Yet, there is something about 'The Shop Around Corner' that feels more authentic than some slice of life classics. So, this brings me to my questions and conversation: Which is your favorite version of this story? Or are you like me where you love both and still go to one or the other. If you have seen 'You've Got Mail' do you feel it showed respect and love to source material while still standing as it own film? I would love to hear input. I hope everyone enjoys their Thanksgiving Week! ~Kita Rhea~
I saw a movie some time ago about a college football player who was failing french. He winds up being tutored by a girl who falls in love with him. He winds up engaged to another girl, fails French, but is given one last chance to sort his grades. He goes back to the tutor, realized he is in love with her an intentionally fails his French exam, but she is the one grading it, and passes him. There is a scene where they dance around the library naming things in French. Can anyone tell me the name of the movie? I've been looking for a few hours now and I can't find it.
I've been trying to find a copy of this movie for years. If anyone can give me info on obtaining a copy I'd appreciate it. I don't know why TCM hasn't shown it. It's a great musical with a great cast.(Ann Sheridan and Martha Raye steal the show!) In my opinion, it's also a historical footnote as it came out in September of 1941. Many of the ships shown in scenes were either damaged or destroyed a few short weeks later.
