Movie Info

In this musical romance, lovely Veronica Fisher (Judy Garland) lands a job in Otto Oberkugen's (S.Z. Sakall) music store in turn-of-the-century Chicago. Though the other employees like her, including Otto's clumsy nephew Hickey (Buster Keaton), salesman Andrew Larkin (Van Johnson) -- who is threatened by her competition, and secretly attracted to her -- greets her coolly. Each of them is carrying on a romantic correspondence with an as-yet-to-be-met pen pal. They are both in for a surprise.

Audience Reviews for In the Good Old Summertime

    Garland gets a few fantastic numbers that make it watchable but mostly this movie saps the charm, wit, and most importantly the stakes out of "The Shop Around the Corner".

    Not all that interesting except for Keaton's role in the movie, which is really funny, the rest of it is just another romantic comedy musical.

    Out of all the versions of Shop Around the Corner, this one is definitely my favorite. The girl character is quite a shrewish bitch, and only Judy Garland's ineffable charm is able to temper the harsh dialogue. The chemistry is decent and the story is terrible, but Judy's voice make it all worth it. If there was anytime a star was necessary, it's here.

    okay, would have been better with a different leading man, that's Liza Minnelli at the end
