A famous comedy, and one which inspired the longrunning TV sitcom, Bewitched. Veronica Lake is extremely attractive, and the idea is fun; but the script is disappointingly tame, and the direction more stolid than Rene Clair's high reputation might lead you to expect. Roy Webb's music was Oscar-nominated.
