"...[With] a fabulous cast..."

"Richard Quine's BELL, BOOK AND CANDLE combined urban glamour and uncanny allure to make something like Hitchcock's masterpiece played for twinkling comedy."

Description by OLDIES.com:

Meet Gillian Holroyd (Kim Novak), Greenwich Village's most seductive sorceress. Powerful, glamorous, and a wee bit bored, Gillian knows that witches can't fall in love. But they can have fun...especially if their lover belongs to another woman! So when Gillian discovers handsome new neighbor Shep Henderson (James Stewart) is the fiance of an old college nemesis (Janice Rule), she promptly puts the befuddled publisher under her spell. But while her sex hex may have heated up Shep's heart, it has also unthawed her own, leading to a romantic complication that not even Pyewacket - Gillian's mind-reading cat - could have foreseen.

Presented in an eye-popping Technicolor transfer that beautifully captures James Wong Howe's stunning cinematography, Bell, Book and Candle - co-starring Jack Lemmon, Ernie Kovacs, Hermione Gingold and Elsa Lanchester - is "a delightful spoof on witchcraft with the cast members at their very best." (The Motion Picture Guide)

Product Description:

Great cast in supernatural romantic comedy. When urban witch Novak casts a spell on Stewart to lure him away from a snooty former schoolmate, she finds the spell rebounding due to the intercession of a more powerful witch (Gingold). Lemmon and comic genius Kovacs add lots of laughs. Academy Award Nominations: 2.

Plot Synopsis:

In order to get revenge on a snooty former schoolmate, Manhattan witch Gillian casts a love spell on the schoolmate's fiance, Shepard. But her plan goes awry when she begins to have feelings of her own for Shep -- and witches aren't supposed to fall in love with humans.
