2 Episodes

It’s a match made in screwball heaven! René Clair’s ebulliently inventive supernatural romance I MARRIED A WITCH stars Veronica Lake at her saucy best as a seductive sorceress who uses her hex appeal to get revenge on a hapless Fredric March. The film’s original producer (who ultimately left the project due to artistic differences), Preston Sturges, directs the uproarious THE MIRACLE OF MORGAN’S CREEK, a jaw-droppingly subversive treatment of sex and marriage that somehow slipped past the 1940s censors.
