Trivia:
One of several Paramount Pictures productions purchased by United Artists for theatrical release in 1942-1943 during a product surplus of the former company, and a product shortage of the latter.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: The film opens with a scene of Puritans in the Massachusetts colony burning witches. No-one was ever burned for witchcraft in America. The accused witches of Salem, Massachusetts, and its environs were hanged, with the exception of Giles Corey, who was pressed to death with rocks. Burning was the European method of executing witches, and pop culture has long confused the two historical spheres.See more »

Superior light comedy, 15 October 2002
Author: funkyfry from Oakland CA

Pleasing comedy fantasy. There are some moments where watching Lake perform is really nice -- I love the bitchy look and how she puts her arms out when she slams the door with her magic in anger. Lake plays a witch who accidentally casts a love spell on herself, and therfore ends up domesticating herself and adopting moral attitudes her warlock father is opposed to. Fun and slightly meaningful in the Sturges mold.
