I tweeted about this film last night as I watched its closing moments. I just wanted to take a moment to briefly post here about what an imaginative, creative piece of cinema this was. As a fan of the television series “Bewitched” (which this film predates by 20 years or so), I really was taken in by the story of a witch mixing with a mortal and all the wondrous things that come with that.
The film was directed by René Clair and is based on the novel The Passionate Witch by Thorne Smith.
The supporting cast is also of note and includes the likes of Cecil Kellaway, Susan Hayward and the ever entertaining Robert Benchley.
For more information on this film, I refer you to the entry in the TCM Movie Database.
