About the Film:

In pre-World War II Budapest, Hungary, two employees working at a gift shop during the yuletide season can barely stand each other, without realizing that they are falling in love through correspondence as each other's anonymous pen pal. Directed by Ernst Lubitsch, this film was remade in 1998 as You've Got Mail. Starring James Stewart, Margaret Sullavan, and Frank Morgan.
