I Put a Spell on You

2 Episodes

Modern-day witches cast a silver-screen spell in two utterly enchanting romantic comedies. Fresh from their pairing in VERTIGO, stars Kim Novak and James Stewart reunited for BELL, BOOK AND CANDLE, featuring black-magic beatniks, some serious queer subtext, and a memorable cat named Pyewacket. Then, Veronica Lake uses her otherworldly charms to ensnare Fredric March in René Clair’s I MARRIED A WITCH, a delightful screwball confection bursting with playful special effects and sparkling wit. Fun fact: both films were key influences on the classic sitcom “Bewitched.”
