The Shop Around the Corner is a 1940 American romantic comedy film produced and directed by Ernst Lubitsch and starring James Stewart, Margaret Sullavan, and Frank Morgan. My all time favorite movie. I like all three versions equally.
One of my all-time favorite movies, You've Got Mail. Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) owns a charming indie children's bookstore called The Shop Around the Corner. Joe Fox (Tom Hanks) is the owner of a giant, box bookstore called Fox Books.
If you spend time on Heroes and Heartbreakers, or with other groups of engaged readers, you'll notice that many of us love the idea of our favorite books becoming movies. But the pleasure can also flow in the opposite direction.
