In the Good Old Summertime

Do you like musicals? Judy Garland? The movie You've Got Mail? Then you'd probably be a fan of In the Good Old Summertime (1949). 

First came The Shop Around the Corner (I'll do a post on that eventually), then In the Good Old Summertime popped into theaters, and then You've Got Mail.

I feel like if you like You've Got Mail, you don't just like it. You LOVE IT. I'm one of those people, and neither of the first two films can compare to the final email-era one. 

Why bother buying a high chair? Just grab a rope.
Whatever she's writing isn't as great as something about "bouquets of freshly sharpened pencils."
The first date sequence is almost exactly the same as the one in You've Got Mail.
As you can tell from the frost, the bulk of this movie doesn't actually take place during the summer months, but when the word "summer" is in the title..... it ends up in the summer movie series. 

It starts and finishes in summer, so it's not a totally wintery movie. But I'm pretty sure they called the movie In the Good Old Summertime just because they wanted to throw the song in there (watch the last 20 seconds of this video).
