Plot: In 1672 a witch and her father were both burned by Jonathan Wooley - but before she succumbed to the flames she cursed the family in that all males would be miserable by marrying the wrong woman. Flash-forward to the 20th century where a bolt of lighting suddenly frees the duo - assuming human form, she wastes no time in going after Wallace Wooley - descendant of the one who burned her. She decides to make his love life even more miserable by marrying him herself - but she has to resort to a love potion for the straight-arrow politician.... with unintended consequences. -- Chris Kavan

Cheeky comedy that rides solely on the infectious cheerful nature (and good looks) of Ms. Lake. Slightly underwritten, this is a swift and short attempt at 'screwball' that only gave me a few chuckles. Innocent fluff and nothing more.

This featherweight comedy stars Veronica Lake as a witch, burned at the stake in Ye Olden times who comes back in the 40s to beguile the ancestor of the man responsible. Essentially this is a feature length episode of Bewitched. The jokes aren't really all that funny and the script is weaker than curry house lager. What this film does have going for it is Ms Lake herself, who is the stuff restraining orders are made of. She is absolutely adorable throughout and although she is the only reason to watch this film, on this occasion one reason is enough.
