Bell, Book and Candle

Directed by Richard Quine • 1958 • United States
Starring James Stewart, Kim Novak, Jack Lemmon

The same year that they costarred in Alfred Hitchcock’s VERTIGO, James Stewart and Kim Novak teamed up for this imaginative romantic comedy based on the Broadway hit. Novak is Gillian Holroyd, a normal, everyday witch living in 1950s Greenwich Village who uses her supernatural powers to break up the engagement of her old college rival to the publisher Sheperd Henderson (Stewart). But when Gillian winds up falling for the hapless Sheperd, she finds that it may be love’s magic that casts the most powerful of spells.
