I Married a Witch movie scene

Veronica Lake and Fredric March get supernatural in I Married a Witch.

Veronica Lake (Sullivan’s Travels) casts a seductive spell as a charmingly vengeful sorceress in the 1942 supernatural screwball comedy I Married a Witch.

In the classic movie, many centuries after cursing the male descendants of the Salem puritan who sent her to the stake, Jennifer (Lake), the blonde bombshell with the broomstick, finds herself drawn to one of them—a prospective governor (Fredric March, Design for Living) about to marry a spoiled socialite (Susan Hayward, Where Love Has Gone).

One of the more popular movies the innovative French director René Clair (Le million) made in Hollywood, I Married a Witch is a comic film confection bursting with playful special effects and sparkling witticisms.

The Criterion DVD and Blu-ray feature the following:

• New 2K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
• Audio interview with director René Clair
• Trailer
• A booklet featuring an essay by filmmaker Guy Maddin (Careful) and a 1970 interview with Clair
