Christmas in The Crown: The Shop Around the Corner
Alfred Kralik (James Stewart) and Klara Novak (Margaret Sullavan) are employees at Matuschek and Company, a general store in Budapest. At work, Klara and Alfred argue incessantly, never suspecting that they are carrying on a tender romance through the mail. Through their anonymously signed letters, the lovers agree to meet for the first time at a cafe, but when Alfred arrives at the rendezvous, he is astonished to discover that his secret love is Klara. Determined to keep it a secret, it isn’t until Christmas Eve at the shop that they reveal their true feelings. 1940. Not Rated. 1 hour, 39 minutes.
