Editorial Reviews

Veronica Lake (Sullivan's Travels) casts a seductive spell as a charmingly vengeful sorceress in this supernatural screwball classic. Many centuries after cursing the male descendants of the Salem puritan who sent her to the stake, this blonde bombshell with a broomstick finds herself drawn to one of them—a prospective governor (Design for Living’s Fredric March) about to marry a spoiled socialite (I Want to Live's Susan Hayward). This most delightful of the films the innovative French director René Clair (Le million) made in Hollywood is a comic confection bursting with playful special effects and sparkling witticisms.

I've been waiting for at least 10 years for this hilarious film to be released on dvd for region 1. I owned the vhs, and it was a film I'd watch with family and friends every Halloween season....until dvds replaced vhs tapes. It's been a long wait. At one point, I even purchased a bootleg with Korean subtitles that was too awful to enjoy. I'm thrilled that it's getting the Criterion treatment that it deserves.
Veronica Lake is stunning as a witch who puts a curse on the descendants of the judge who convicted her of witchcraft in Puritan New England. Cecil Kellaway is charming. Fredric March plays the descendants from the 17th century until the present day (1942), doomed to suffer miserable marriages. Great sets, great costumes, great hair, great story by the writer of Topper. Lake must have been quite a diva. She and Fredric March loathed one another. March said working with her was the worst experience of his life, and he worked with Miriam Hopkins! Joel McCrea turned it down because he refused to work with her after Sullivan's Travels.
Speaking of divas, Susan Hayward is in it too!

It's rare nowadays when you can say that you have seen a totally delightful comedy in the cinemas. That rare marriage of charming scenerio, ideally cast players, and romantic setting seems to be sadly a thing of the past which is why I always find "I Married a Witch", such enjoyable viewing. Here we have two very famous performers in dramatic veteran Fredric March, and Film Noir siren Veronica Lake playing against their usual "type" and having a field day cutting loose with this romantic screwball tale that combines sexy humour with elements of the supernatural. Based on the unfinished novel by "Topper", author Thorne Smith, "I Married a Witch", gave us a whole new image of what witches were like minus the warts and crooked nose and in much the same vein as the later legendary series "Bewitched", showed us witches who were playful and extremely sexy. Veronica Lake had I feel her most appealing role here and proved herself adept at frothy comedy and capable of far more than just looking slinky hiding behind her famous peek a boo hairstyle. Her chemistry with Fredric March is magical here (no pun intended!), and goes a long way towards making "I Married a Witch", the great success it is.
Veronica Lake plays a Salem witch who along with her father is burnt at the stake on charges of scorcery. Before her death however she places a curse on the decendants of the man responsible for the burning, one Wallace Wooley. They are all cursed to marry "unhappily", and then we are treated to a series of highly amusing "historical snippets" showing how each generation of the Wooley family falls victim to the curse with wives they would probably much prefer to see burnt at the stake!

I once did a list for a friend of the ten sexiest female characters in the movies. Veronica Lake's lovely witch ranked very high on that list. Although she starred in several other classic films from 1942 to 1946, this movie is easily my favorite. Much of her reputation today is based on her several appearances in film noir classics (THIS GUN FOR HIRE, THE GLASS KEY, and THE BLUE DAHLIA), but I actually preferred her in this film and to a lesser degree SULLIVAN'S TRAVELS.
The rest of the cast is just as delightful. Fredric March is everything you could ask a romantic lead who is descended from Puritans to be, and Cecil Kellaway and Robert Benchley take turns stealing scenes.
Of all the European directors forced by political turmoil in Germany and Italy to work in the US temporarily in the thirties and forties, Rene Clair probably had the most successful record. While his best work remains the extraordinary films he made in the early thirties working in France (SOUS LES TOITS DE PARIS, À NOUS LA LIBERTÉ, and, my favorite Clair film, LE MILLION), he nonetheless managed to make some exquisite films both in England (THE GHOST GOES WEST) and the US (IT HAPPENED TOMORROW and the marvelous comic mystery film AND THEN THERE WERE NONE).
Much is made of the fact that I MARRIED A WITCH inspired the sixties TV show BEWITCHED, but I think this can be overdone. BEWITCHED was a situation comedy, whereas I MARRIED A WITCH depends much more on the irony of a witch falling in love with the ancestor of the Puritans who had cursed her a few hundred years before. In BEWITCHED, it is immaterial who Darrin and Samantha's forebears were, whereas the heart of the movie depends on ancestry.
All lovers of classic comedy, classic Hollywood, or classic directors should definitely see this film if they haven't already.

Rene Clair's greatest American film, with the old Surrealist turning what could have been merely a supernatural comic romp into something truly plangent. Veronica Lake plays the spirit of a witch burnt by Puritans in the 17th century, cursing the descendents of her denouncer to eternal marital malaise (the wonderful period prologues predate Monty Python by decades in their anachronistic lampooning of history). Fast forward to the present where the latest sap, Fredric March, is about to be married to a REAL witch (a fabulously imperious Susan Hayward), on the eve of running for governor as puppet for her media-baron father. Lake decides on some spirited revenge, attempting to destroy March's life by making him fall in love with her; only, through a botched spell, finding herself smitten.
'I Married a Witch' is more than an antique precursor to the incomparable TV series 'Bewitched'. it is one of Clair's most expertly constructed farces, full of his recognisable art-deco geometry; with the mixture of sex, magic and politics provoking irresistable set-pieces, such as the pair's introduction in a burning hotel; Lake's pointed attempts to seduce and compromise March by commandeering his bedroom; or the glorious, sustained fiasco of the wedding sequence, a real shotgun wedding, complete with hurricanes, kitsch operetta and murder. The corruption of 'interests'-dominated America and the impressionability of the electorate are satirised, while serious points are made about the country's historical legacy, the ghosts of its past materialising to avenge long-forgotten crimes.
