Movie Quote of the Day – The Shop Around The Corner, 1940 (dir. Ernst Lubitsch)
Alfred Kralik: Can you see her?
Alfred Kralik: Is she pretty?
Pirovitch: Very pretty.
Alfred Kralik: She is, huh?
Pirovitch: I should say, she looks, she has a little of the coloring of Klara.
Alfred Kralik: Klara, Miss Novak of the shop?
Pirovitch: Now, Kralik, you must admit Klara is a very good looking girl, and personally I’ve always found her a very likable girl.
Alfred Kralik: Well this is a fine time to talk about Miss Novak.
Pirovitch: Well, if you don’t like Miss Novak, I can tell you right now you won’t like that girl.
Alfred Kralik: Why?
Pirovitch: Because it is Miss Novak.

Love this movie so much!
I’ve seen it in theaters twice at the Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley, both times introduced by David Thomson and both were some of the greatest film experiences I’ve ever had.
