I Married A Witch (1942) with Pamela Hutchinson

Anna is joined by film writer, critic and historian Pamela Hutchison to talk about the delightful 1942 comedy I Married A Witch, where screen icon Veronica Lake plays a playful sorceress.

Veronica Lake plays a 300-year-old witch who returns to life and wreaks havoc when she falls in love with a young politician, played by Frederic March. A romance fantasy comedy, the film by RenĂ© Clair has had a noticeable influence on other witch films that blend romance and witchcraft. 

I'm joined in this episode by film writer, critic and historian Pamela Hutchison to talk the context this film was made in, the dark themes explored under all the laughs and Veronica Lake's charming performance.
