Trivia / The Shop Around the Corner

  • AFI's 100 Years... 100 Passions: #28
  • Billing Displacement: Margaret Sullavan actually gets top billing over Jimmy Stewart.
    • At the time of this film's release, Sullavan was seen as an older established star and Stewart (despite having appeared in some hit films such as Mr. Smith Goes to Washington) was still the up-and-coming actor rather than the icon he would be in the postwar era. And it was Sullavan who had introduced Stewart into the Dream Factory a few years before.
  • Fake Nationality: The Hungarian characters are played by American, Austrian and German actors.
  • Romance on the Set: More precisely, James Stewart had fallen in love with Margaret Sullavan even before, but she never reciprocated.
