Alfred (James Stewart) and Klara (Margaret Sullivan), the star employees at a gift shop, are constantly at odds with each other over every little thing. As the busy Christmas season approaches, the only bit of solace they find from their daily bickering is when they write to their anonymous pen pals. As their correspondence turns to fondness, fate has a big surprise planned for the two coworkers. The Shop Around the Corner is not only considered one of the finest romantic comedies, it’s also regarded as one of the greatest movies ever made!
