The play Parfumerie by Miklos Laszlo is the only credited source, but Ernst Lubitsch's 1940 film The Shop Around the Corner, adapted from the play, is an uncredited source, with the musical apparently utilizing elements from the film that are not in the play. (Samson Raphaelson wrote the screenplay.) Pre-opening press reports seem to have only mentioned the film. In a 1993 New York Times article, it was reported that librettist Joe Masteroff said that he based his book more closely on the film than on the play.
Miklos Laszalo's Hungarian play, Parfumerie, was presented in Budapest in 1937. It was made into a film in 1940, The Shop Around the Corner, into a film musical in 1949, In the Good Old Summer Time, the film You've Got Mail. The film musical had a score by various composers and had nothing to do with this version.See more
