Storyline

After the love of her life Billy Ben Turner gets engaged to Ellwyn, the daughter of a rich farmer, a jealous Jess-Belle turns to a local witch to help her get him back. Granny Hart is known in the area as the person to go too for any potion you might want. Jess-Belle has no money however and all Granny Hart can give her is a potion that carries a high price. Jess-Belle is prepared to pay any price and the potion she takes seems to work: as soon as Billy Ben sets eyes on her, he falls madly in love with her. When the clock strikes midnight however, Jess-Belle is transformed and later realizes that she too is now a witch. Written by garykmcd

A Love Story
3 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, lovesick Jess-Belle(played by Anne Francis) is heartsick that her great love Billy Ben Turner(played by James Best) is set to marry another woman(played by Laura Devon), who is the daughter of a successful farmer. In desperation, she turns to a witch named Granny Hart(played by Jeanette Nolan) who casts a love potion for her that works fine, but comes at a high price, so now Jess-Belle has a whole new problem to solve, even with Billy Ben's undying love... Nice little supernatural love story looks and feels authentic, with some clever touches and good performances, though again feels padded to fill out an hour.
