In this musical, Van Johnson and Judy Garland play two clerks in a sheet-music store who detest each other on sight. Both reserve their words of affection for their respective pen pals, whom they've never met. However, it turns out that Johnson is Garland's pen pal, and she his.

Audience Reviews for In the Good Old Summertime

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
