In 1672, two witches (Jennifer and her father Daniel) were burned by puritan Jonathan Wooley. In revenge, Jennifer cursed all future generations of the Wooley family, that the sons will always marry the wrong woman and be miserable. In the 20th century, a bolt of lightning frees Jennifer and her father from the tree that had kept their souls imprisoned. Jennifer assumes corporeal form and decides to make up-and-coming politician Wallace Wooley, then unhappily engaged, even more miserable by getting him to fall in love with her before his wedding. Wallace is a straight arrow, though, and Jennifer has to resort to a love potion. As we all know, love potions tend to backfire, with comedic results.Written by
A favorite when I was a boy and still worth watching
When I first saw this film in the fifties and I was in my early teens, I thought then that Veronica Lake was one of the sexiest and good-looking ladies that I had ever seen. After watching the movie again recently, I still think so. She displayed a good sense of timing in this film. It was rather sad to read of her later history leading up to her death.
