Ernst Lubitsch's enchanting romantic comedy, centred on an emporium in Budapest just prior to Christmas, charts the ups and downs in the relationship of sales assistants Klara (Margaret Sullavan) and Alfred (James Stewart), whose anonymous correspondence with each other by mail is inconveniently at odds with their bitter rivalry at work. An enduring delight.
