    I MARRIED A WITCH – BD & DVD Editions
    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'm still a DVD only household. If I put a link to the DVD version will the referral still be added? Basically I want to make sure you guys get the credit for the sale.

    Bob,

    Seems like the only way we're going to get these old Paramounts is through Criterion. Universal seems to have no interest.
    What a great Ray Milland box set that would have been, Ministry of Fear, The Uninvited, plus a few others of his 1930s/40s Paramounts; maybe like Kitty or Arise My Love.
