What are some film remakes with different titles from the original, and what’s the story with the most films of different titles made from it?
I can think of at least one triple-play. The Shop Around The Corner was a 1940 film starring Jimmy Stewart and Margaret Sullavan, about a man and woman who end up working together and politely loathe each other on sight, but who, unknown to either of them, are pen pals who delight in each other’s “company” in written form.
This was remade as a musical in 1949 as In The Good Old Summertime, starring Judy Garland and Van Johnson and set in a music store.
It was then remade again in 1998 as You’ve Got Mail, starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, with the setting and premise slightly altered to a small bookstore about to be swallowed up by a major bookseller chain, with Ryan as the small store owner and Hanks as the executive in charge of opening the new chain store near the smaller shop, and they’re modern “pen pals” in email.
ETA: I’m aware that the premise is originally from a 1937 Hungarian play, and that there have been additional versions in other media than film, but I’d like to concentrate on films in this thread.
