THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER is a 1940 romantic drama in which a man and woman unknowingly exchange letters with each other whilst working in the same shop.

There is an implied attempted suicide by a store owner after learning of his wife's apparent infidelity, with the sound of a gunshot off screen. However, the character returns to health and is unharmed.

Although neither glamorised or promoted, there are frequent scenes in which characters smoke cigarettes or cigars. In another scene, a man pushes his co-worker against a shelving unit in frustration.
