The Great GarlandBy Cato (715 reviews) from Lydbury North , 26 Jul 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]OK. It's a 1949 musical about a couple of people who correspond with each other but never meet but one works in a music shop and the other one gets a job there. Doesn't sound all that promising, does it? But there's one ingredient that makes this film very watchable indeed, and that's the great Judy Garland. She just seema to light up any film she's in, although the other actors, including Van Johnson, are very good in this offering as well. You know what's going to happen after five minutes, but somehow it doesn't matter at all. Settle down and wallow.

Romantic and Feel-goodBy a customer , 14 Feb 2013Simple but heartwarming plot, a true Judy Garland classic.Garland portrays an intelligent, strong-willed and beautiful woman - a great role model for young women. Well worth a watch if you enjoy musicals, romance and a feel-good film.
The Best VersionBy desertstream1 (8 reviews) , 25 Jan 2013Lovely version of 'shop around the corner' and 'you've got mail.' I think I like this one best, it has some hillarious scenes which the later versions have not included. A shame, although some of the script is kept in 'Shop Around the Corner' and the musical element is an added bonus.
Open The Box, What Av Ya Got...One Great Movie!!By laneyb (262 reviews) from Rochester, Kent , 20 Feb 2012Give me any film with ''Judy Garland'' in I'll watch it, I think she was Brilliant. This one is no different, The cast were all great, worked well together.
Before 'You've Got Mail'By Donensian (100 reviews) from Doncaster , 15 Oct 2010A happy musical version of 'The Shop Around the Corner' with Judy Garland, Van Johnson, SZ 'Cuddles' Sakall, Spring Byington, Clinton Sundburg and Buster Keaton all working in a music shop at the turn of the 19th Century. A shop girl (Garland) corresponds with a man (Johnson) through a dating agency not knowing he is her detested shop manager. A pleasant musical experience with lots of laughs.
