    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".

    An excellent musical film with great acting and incredible singing. Judy Garland does what she does best by enchanting us with her lovely voice

    In the Good Old Summertime is an excellent film. It is about two clerks in a sheet-music store who detest each other on sight. Van Johnson and Judy Garland give amazing performances. The screenplay is well written. Robert Z. Leonard did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the music and romance. In the Gold Summertime is a must see.

    Extremely pleasant musical adaptation of THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER, with Judy and Van a fun romantic comedy team; the great silent comedian Buster Keaton has a rather thankless supporting role.

    Light, but enjoyable musical. When Judy Garland is on top of her game, she is great. This may not be her masterpiece, but it's still charming and she shines in everything she does.

    Love it, four of Hollywood's best known and loved actors of all time. Shop Around the Corner with music, what more could you ask for!?

    I never saw the original Shop Around the Corner but I thought this one was well done. Judy Garland was so darn cute. I thought the lead actors complimented each other nicely. Such a cute story and got some laughs. Not my favorite Judy Garland film but love it just the same and sure I will be watching it again. :)
