She was a beautiful witch...but she done him wrong!
A comedy from the golden age of Hollywood, based on an unfinished novel by Throne Smith. A witch and her sorcerer father who were burned at the stake by Puritans in the 17th century return to the present to haunt the descendant of the man who condemned them. Now Wallace Woodley is running for governor when a young beautiful witch step into his life.

Not as witty as other screwball romantic comedies of the time, and of course the resolution is never in doubt, but this is still a lot of fun and you would not know March and Lake hated each other as they chemistry together is great. The film actually takes a while to get going as it spends far too long setting up its ridiculous premise than it needs to, but once Lake appears, it vastly improves and the centrepiece scene at a wedding is the highlight and a lot of fun.
