James Stewart is the shop manager, Margaret Sullavan his bright and breezy sales clerk, and while they bicker at work they're unwittingly engaged in an letter-writing love affair. Lubitsch mixes sentiment with suspense, the performances are perfect and the comedy is charming. One of the great romantic comedies of all time; one of the great films of all time.
