Based upon the earlier Lubitcsh film, The Shop Around the Corner, transferred to Chicago and in Technicolor. They were starved for Technicolor in Budapest.
And for those into facts, the same play, Parfumerie, was the basis for a later film entitled You’ve Got Mail, which was neither in Technicolor nor based in Hungary.
Yet another typical perfect 3-strip presentation from Warner Archive, which is getting boring.
A beautiful film, and for the Garland collector, yet another step towards Blu-ray completion.
I seemed to notice a dip in the track at a certain point, but it could be my system, so no demerits.
