Trivia:
The scene where a lightning bolt splits open the tree imprisoning the souls of Veronica Lake's and Cecil Kellaway's characters was later re-used in "Cheyenne: Satonka (#7.2)" (1962).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 »

Wonderful Magical, 17 June 2001
Author: aesgaard41 from United States

I love this movie! It's mystically enchanting and irresistably charming. It's probably the greatest movie which Veronica Lake ever did, and probably one of the best classics to come out of the heyday of Hollywood.As captivating as Marilyn Monroe was to become,Lake is wonderfully demure and waif-like in her appearance, and Fredric March shows great range between befuddled and charmed by lake as she enraptures him. The movie's appeal lives on in the romances of Bewitched and Dark shadows !
