Storyline

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.

Veronica Fisher: I wish you could read his letters. Then you could see he has such a lofty point of view.
Andrew Delby Larkin: [sitting close and speaking in a low voice] Loft?
Veronica Fisher: [starts to scoot away] And now to find out he's so materialistic.
Andrew Delby Larkin: [putting his arm around her shoulders and drawing her close again] Materialistic, too? I'm sorry. I hate to think I've spoiled your Christmas.

Charming.
28 March 2005 | by (Groningen, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

What a charming, little, easy to watch movie this was.

Nothing great, nothing heavy or new but simply just great easy entertainment with great performances from Judy Garland, Van Johnson and Buster Keaton in a small but fun role and apparently also Liza Minnelli in an even smaller, and her first role.

The story is simple but charming and effective. It's an early version (but not the earliest) of "You've Got Mail". It's not really a musical, just merely a movie that just happen to have some songs in it. The songs are nothing spectacular like you would expect when you hear the word 'musical'. So, if you don't like musical movies this movie might still be very well worth your time as well.

Don't let the year it was made in scare you of. This is a movie that doesn't ever get outdated, mainly thanks to its fun and easy to watch, kind of atmosphere.

7/10
