I Married A Witch (1942) In 1672, two witches (Jennifer and her father Daniel) are burned by puritan Jonathan Wooley; in 1942, they rematerialize to plague his descendant Wallace Wooley, candidate for state governor. Wallace is about to marry tart-tongued Estelle, but Jennifer has other ideas; then her love potion goes wrong...

More Movie Taglines:
  • She's a witch (and we do mean witch) who gets what she wants with hex appeal!
  • She was a beautiful witch...but she done him wrong!
  • She's got him so he doesn't know which is witch!
  • When she finishes with him, he won't know witch is which!
  • She knows all about love potions... and lovely motions!
Movie Quote(s):
  • Jennifer: 'Twould be nice to have lips... lips to whisper lies... lips to kiss man and make him suffer. Father, why cannot I have lips, and eyes, and hair?
  • Daniel: [(sings)] For tonight I merry merry be / Tomorrow I'll be sober.
  • Wallace Wooley: I'm afraid you've got a hangover. Daniel: Don't tell me what I've got! I invented the hangover. It was in 1892... B.C.
  • Dr. Dudley White: It's OK. He fell out of the window.
  • Wallace Wooley: Mere physical beauty isn't everything.
Movie Trivia:
  • The biggest misconception about this movie is that it is the basis for "Bewitched" (1964). It's completely untrue. The only thing the two have in common is a witch marrying a mortal. Darren's ancestors have nothing to do with Samantha or her ancestors. The only member of Jennifer's family we meet is her father, nor are we exposed to any other witches or warlocks. Samantha doesn't lose her powers because she falls in love.
  • Several cast members listed in studio records did not appear in the movie. These were (with their character names): Reed Hadley (Young Man), Jan Buckingham (Young Woman), Florence Gill (Woman Playing Chess) and Walter Soderling (Man Playing Chess).
  • Dalton Trumbo was a contributing writer, but left because his interpretation of the novel differed from producer Preston Sturges. Sturges also left the production (and declined onscreen credit) because of artistic differences with director René Clair
  • Joel McCrea was initially cast as the lead, but declined the role because he didn't want to work again with Veronica Lake, his co-star in Sullivan's Travels (1941).
  • Veronica Lake and Fredric March did not like one another, due in part to some disparaging remarks March made about her. During filming, Lake delighted in playing pranks on March, such as hiding a 40-pound weight under her costume when March had to carry her in his arms. In another scene in which the two were photographed only from the waist up, Lake stuck her foot in March's groin.
