Storyline

Jake Russell, the friendly police chief in town so small initially worries about mysterious outsider heiress Cassandra 'Cassie' Nightingale, who moved into the house held to be haunted by the 'grey lady', and opens a strange gift shop full with attributes of occultism, soon causing the rumor she's a wicked witch. After Cassie kindly helps his brave son Brandon (and his sissy sister Lori) with a dog, bully Kyle -abused by his own poor dad- and their own fears, Jake soon makes friends with her, even romantically interested. Yet the 'chief' is professionally obliged to handle a flood of complaints and harassment started by the mayor's haughty wife, her busy bodies-bunch, and teenage brats. Finally Derek Sanders, Jakes's only deputy, hits on Cassie's hidden background. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The main casting of the movie were well-known by some TV shows: Catherine Bell by JAG (1995), Chris Potter by Kung Fu: The Legend Continues (1993), Catherine Disher by Forever Knight (1989) and Peter McNeill by Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future (1987). See more »

Goofs

When Cassie is telling Jake about her childhood, she makes reference to being sent to an orphanage "'back' in the U.S." Since Middleton is supposed to be somewhere in the United States, she should have said "'here' in the U.S." This seems like a mistake due to the fact it was filmed in Canada. This actually is not a mistake, as she was discussing her parent's death while traveling in Europe. Since during that time she was in Europe, it would make sense that she would say "back in US" since she was not in the US at the time. See more »

Quotes

Deputy Derek Sanders: Nosy old bat. I think she wants to be mayor more than her husband.
Jake Russell: More like emperor.

Ring my Bell
29 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Old-fashioned, never-never-land fable about a mysterious woman who comes to a small town to claim an inheritance, specifically, the town's notorious haunted house. She sets up a shop full of potions and gemstones and charms, which does not go down well with the mayor's pompous wife (and tellingly, the only fat woman in the entire cast). This chubby busybody, straight out of a 1940s comedy, is convinced the new arrival is a witch (she does own a black cat and an antique broom) and spends the rest of the film trying to drive her out of town. Meanwhile, the newcomer performs a series of subtle good deeds that help various town folk with problems ranging from sterility to bullies. This Hallmark movie bears more than a passing resemblance to "Bell Book and Candle," and in fact the reputed witch names her New Age-y store Bell Book and Candle. The delectable Catherine Bell plays the mysterious woman, a woman similar to the character played by Kim Novak in "Bell Book and Candle." Since this is a Hallmark TV movie, Bell has to rein in her incredible sensuality, but she's still quite a dish even while playing more of a Mary Poppins character. I got a kick out of the cover for this one, which shows Bell grasping what appears to be a long, black phallic object, while giving us a knowing smile. The object, if you look hard enough, is actually a very long broomstick. Familiar TV actor Chris Potter plays the local sheriff, a widower with two small children who is smitten by Bell at first sight. Spending an evening alone on a couch in front of a roaring fireplace, wineglasses in hand, Bell and Potter manage one chaste kiss -- no tussling in the sheets for these two. This is a Hallmark movie, after all. So a chaste kiss is all we get. Entertaining, low-key family movie that was shot in Canada.
