I hope this incleds the cut number, Last Night When We were Young
A great song, one of Harold Arlen's best. Although Judy Garland's version was available on vinyl at some stage, Frank Sinatra was the one who made this a standard.

Does the film of this exist or is it audio only.
The film exists. Two different versions have been released in the past. One is just the song with a quality image. The other was on the Judy laserdic set and includes an intro from a lesser quality visual source, in which a male voice can be heard directing Judy's movement around the set. Her character, Veronica, is reflecting on some comments made in the earlier scene. We hear a woman reading these and in the final film would have been heard as her thoughts in the correct character voices. It then cuts to the song from the higher quality visual source.

My favorite of all the versions and my favorite Judy Garland film. She is hilarious in this and her singing is awesome. A very hilarious and entertaining film. Buster Keaton is in it and word is he crafted the physical comedy where Judy and Van meet in the beginning. That scene always has me laughing my head off.

For me the 1940 "The Shop Around The Corner" and the 1963 musical "She Loves Me" are far superior to this film. I will say this film is far superior to "You've Got Mail"
There is a difference between the words “favorite” and “superior”. A superior film might not be your favorite version of a film concept.

OK my favorite version of this story is "The Little Shop Around The Corner" Though I never saw the original play the movie was based on called "Parfumerie" so I don't know if I would find the play superior or my new favorite.

Have you ever seen the musical play, SHE LOVES ME? It's the same story, and a very good musical.

No one corrected me for calling it the "Little Shop Around The Corner", which must be a mashup of "The Shop Around The Corner" and "The Little Shop of Horrors" Sorry about that.

I have seen "She Loves Me" and love it. In fact I have it saved on my DVR from when PBS broadcast it last year.

"In The Good Old Summertime" changed the story quite a bit from "Shop". "She Loves Me" is much closer to "Shop"
"Summertime" eliminated the subplot of the shop owner's wife having an affair with the clerk for example.

This is a Great XMAS view any year! Will the greenish picture be resolved? This film was an odd duck here in NYC market -- CBS had the rights to the MGM catalog airing MGM films 1am 2am etc and on Sundays yet for some reason this film was one of a few MGM films aired on WOR-TV
