“Over twenty years before Samantha first wiggled her nose on “Bewitched”, the adorable I MARRIED A WITCH pondered the difficulties of unholy matrimony.” — Entertainment Weekly

Blissfully hilarious and romantic, I MARRIED A WITCH features great chemistry between Veronica Lake (SULLIVAN’S TRAVELS) and Fredric March (THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES). This fun romp from French master Rene Clair (LE MILLION) gives its seasoned leads a chance to break away from stereotypically serious roles (intense leading man and film noir vamp, respectively) and prove their comedic prowess.

Lake stars as an ancient Salem witch once burned at the stake, who returns to haunt descendants of the Puritans who let her smolder — namely aspiring politician March. Lake concocts a love potion, but things get complicated when said potion works on Lake instead and she falls for March!
