These are definitely two of James Stewart's best films. While The Shop Around the Corner is probably one of the greatest romantic comedies ever made, it doesn't quite have the emotional punch that It's a Wonderful Life does (few movies do). Frank Capra wins another one...

Love both, such charming Stewart films but FOR NOW, I will actually pick Lubitsch's underrated classic over Capra's reverred masterpiece.

Ehhh....while I enjoy Shop...this ain't too close for me....

I tend to like Lubitsch a little bit more than Capra.... but it's It's a Wonderful Life we are talking about here.
