Two shop employees in this romantic comedy—Margaret Sullavan and Jimmy Stewart—dislike each other and are unaware that they are anonymous pen pals. The movie was made in 28 days for less than $500,000. It was the basis for the 1998 movie “You’ve Got Mail,” with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, in which Ryan’s bookstore is called The Shop Around The Corner.
