In The Good Old Summertime  DVD
Release Date: April 6, 2004

 

In The Good Old Summertime on DVDAlthough this film has several great musical performances by Judy, it's her comedic talents that really get to shine. A nice, light-hearted musical remake of the 1940 James Stewart and Margaret Sullivan comedy The Shop Around The Corner about two feuding store employees who are unknowingly having a pen-pal romance via letters with each other. The film would be re-made in 1998 with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan as You've Got Mail (replacing the pen-pal plot device with AOL's chat system).

Judy and Van Johnson make a nice team and all of the performances are well done, including Buster Keaton in his final MGM film, and little 2 1/2 Liza Minnelli in her first film (she plays the child of Judy and Van's characters at the end of the film).

Also released October 12, 2004 as part of a special "two-fer" budget priced set with For Me And My Gal.
