The shop around the corner by Ernst Lubitsch ( Visual )
5 editions published between 1940 and 2002 in English and held by 1,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A gentle, ironic romantic comedy in which the salesgirl and the head clerk of a Budapest leather goods and novelty shop are continually at odds with each other. They are unaware that each is the other's 'lonely hearts' correspondent. A good deal of care was taken in creating the milieu in the studio but the theme is universal - the shop could equally be in Middletown, USA. The most naturalistic of Lubitsch's films marked the beginning of the last phase of his career. The setting's independence from the characters is much stronger than in the earlier films where setting has little meaning apart from the characters
