Item Description...
MGM musical mainstays Judy Garland and Van Johnson star in a tuneful remake of The Shop Around the Corner, about two pen pals who fall in love without realizing they work together in the same shop ... and don't like each other much! Set in turn-of-the-century Chicago, the movie features the film "debut" of 2-year-old Liza Minnelli (glimpsed in the last scene cradled in her mother's -- Judy's -- arms).

In the Good Old Summertime  Jan 12, 2007
Cute old fashion movie; based on Little Shop Around the Corder
I love this movie, I initially purchased simply because Buster Keaton is in it, and of course he is wonderful to see. Two bits of business especially are highlights to me, and both are Buster's material are the very beginning where Judy and Van meet and the violin scene.

But I have just fallen in love with In the Good Old Summertime. I love the art direction, the cast (although I'm not a huge Van Johnson fan and this movie does not make me believe that he was ever leading man material), the songs and of course the little extra touches that Buster was first brought in to advise on before being offered the part of the nephew(which is a much younger man in The Shop Around the Corner). Judy Garland is the star of this movie and I am always astonished and thankful that her insecurities and troubles off screen never seem to show up onscreen. She sings up a storm, I especially like the song she does with the quartet.

If you like movies that you can watch and feel happy afterwards then this is the movie for you.
Like the formula, but not the execution.  Nov 28, 2006
As has been noted, this formula has been filmed several times, most recently as "You've Got Mail", with Tom Hanks and Meg"Trout Pout" Ryan. Of the several versions, "In the Good Old Summertime" is my least favorite. The problem I think is that the studio coasted on the Stars charisma, which doesn't quite cut it here.
The chemistry betwixt the two leads never comes to a boil in this movie. There are no real sparks. Van Johnson and Judy Garland remind me of day old donuts, pleasant but stale. And when the leads are boring the rest of the movie can only follow. Judy in particular is disappointing. She looks like she has no neck! I don't know if she was having trouble with pain or something but she looks like a turtle trying to pull it's head into it's shell, all hunched up and everything. I couldn't figure out what Van Johnson was getting so hot about. I would have made a bee line for that cute violin player. And Van wasn't great either. I've always thought of him as a rather generic Hollywood leading man and he doesn't do anything to dispel that image here.
If you're a fan of the stars or the early 1900's then you might like this movie. But there are a lot more entertaining romantic comedies out there, and they offer you much more than a mouthful of stale confection.
I've admired for many years now the artistry and genius of the magnificent Garland and always thought that, even after the years of chemical abuse and "hard knocks", she still retained a very fine, fragile physical beauty in her face and form. However, it always amazes me, whenever I re-view one of her Metro films, how absolutely gorgeous she was and had this sensual, quivering and almost ethereal beauty about her. Having just watched this film, after not viewing it for quite some time, I'm struck with the same impression about her physical qualities. Her talent and artistry never fail to amaze me, no matter how many times I've watched a particular performance, both non-musical or in song. But damn it if she's not sexy and beautiful in this film. She gives one of her finest performances, and one of the finest comedic performance in film of all time. We all know and enjoy the musical numbers, especially "Merry Christmas", "Put Your Arms Around Me Honey", and the outrageous "I Don't Care" (which, along with "Get Happy" from "Summer Stock", would showcase the Garland to be!), and her wonderful comedic interplay with the funny and handsome Van Johnson. However, it's the last moments in this film, when Johnson finally knows that she is in-love with him, that gets to me and I appreciate her incredible talent as if anew. That scene has to be one of the most sensual moments in American cinema...the way he brushes her cheeks with his finger..the way he plays with the collar of her blouse....the way he pulls her close to him, kissing her in such a way that, well ,we know what's on HIS mind at that moment....and her reactions..slightly caught off-guard....hessitant...vulnerable....but then takes control and reciprocates his advances. Can you believe all this in a 3 minutes scene in an MGM film from 1949????? When Johnson says to take "him" out of his "envelope", I mean, talk about subtlety and double entendre , which simply does not exist in today's overtly and vulgar "realistic"- in-our-face world.
Not one of the greatest musical films made but an absolutely entertaining, enjoyable, and sexy little flick is "Summertime", with a radiant and lovely Garland which makes us realize, once again, that she was simply one of the finest artists of the past century. Enjoy!

In the good old Summertime 1949  Apr 13, 2006
IN THE GOOD OLD SUMMERTIME -a tale of squabbling music shop clerk who dont know they are romantic pen pals -shares a celebrated movie lineage that includes many remakes . In betwheen those two Judy Garland (1922-1969) and Van Johnson (1916- ) , had mail plus gold old tunes evoking an era of strawboaters and silvery moons . Sparked by Garland?s comedic zest and musical appeal this confections is one of the sweetest , most unpretentious entertainment of 1949 . It?s also a nostalgic farawell and a sunny hallo . Buster Keaton (1895-1966) appears in his final film for the studios he first joined in 1928 and hi is enormoeus funny in this movie . Liza Minelli (1946-) , all of 18 months young makes her debut in the finale . A Superb M-G-M Musical from the biggest and best studio of that time , Transfer in Ultra-Resolution Quality . Recommended
