Movie Quote of the Day – The Shop Around The Corner, 1940 (dir. Ernst Lubitsch)

Alfred Kralik: Can you see her?
Pirovitch: Yes.
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.

  1. 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.
