It's turn of the century America when Andrew and Veronica first meet - by crashing into each other. They develop an instant and mutual dislike which intensifies when, later on, Andrew is forced to hire Veronica as a saleslady at Oberkugen's music store. What the two don't know is that while they may argue and fight constantly throughout the day, they are actually engaged in an innocent, romantic and completely anonymous relationship by night, through the post office.

Judy Garland and Van Johnson are delightful together in this comedic romp!
You've got to admit, Judy Garland never looked prettier or acted funnier than she did in this movie. The plot line is simple yet complicated: Boy and girl write to each other. They fall in love. They meet, not knowing that the other is really their pen pal. They hate each other. Boy figures it out. Boy falls for girl. Girl falls for boy. You can only guess the ending. They made a re-make with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, now known as "You've Got Mail." It was one of my favorites and when I found out that Judy Garland was in the second movie based on the story, I had to have it! I'm so glad that I bought it. I love this movie. The songs "I Don't Care" and "Barbershop Chord" are ADORABLE! I suggest that anyone who likes Judy Garland or a good old fashioned movie. Definitely one of her best!
