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~
There needs to be a discussion thread for this, arguably the most superior courtroom drama ever produced. If I'm familiar with any film scene-by-scene, word-for-word, character-by-character, and shot-for-shot its probably this one (alongside 'Touch of Evil'). I've read the screenplay, and purchased the music; I've owned the novel and I've reviewed the spoken dialog in the film likely hundreds of times. Just a casual fan, mind now. The foremost reason I became so interested in the flick was the jazz score. A standard item in my listening habits. Your thoughts on this movie, please.
This is a new thread for our current Star of the Month for May 2014: JUNE ALLYSON! YAY!!! I know some people dislike her for whatever reason, but I please ask you to be kind on here. If you have something yucky or mean to say, please try to refrain from being unkind. This is a thread for the nice and loverly people. Thank you kindly everyone! Now, who's ready and loves Junie?!
