In the Good Old Summertime

0 Love It
Save it
A musical remake of Lubitsch's The Shop Around the Corner, with the period moved back to 1906, the setting shifted to a Chicago music store, and Garland at her most captivating as the shop assistant waging a war of attrition with her bossy superior (Johnson), unaware that he is the lonelyhearts pen pal with whom she has already fallen in love. The fragile charm is rather let down by an indifferent score, although Garland makes the most of her numbers and the rest of the cast give sterling support. Liza Minnelli made her bow as the child at the end.
