CAST: James Stewart, Kim Novak, Jack Lemmon, Ernie Kovacs, Hermione Gingold, Elsa Lanchester DIRECTOR: Richard Quine CLASSIC FILM SERIES


Kim Novak plays Gillian Holroyd, a genuine, bonafide witch. Falling in love with publisher Sheperd Henderson (James Stewart), Gillian casts a spell on him, obliging him to dump his fiancee and rush to her side. All of this goes against the grain of Gillian's mentor Mrs. De Pass (Hermione Gingold), who does her best to counterract the love spell. Meanwhile, Gillian's wacky warlock brother Nicky (Jack Lemmon) courts disaster by coauthoring a book on black magic with pompous, bibulous novelist Sidney Redlitch (Ernie Kovacs).


Toast to a bewitching holiday season: join us at 5 PM (before the 6:45 PM evening screening) for a sparkling wine tasting with experts from Unique Wines and Wildside Wines. We'll introduce you to some delightful sparklers for the holiday season! Tickets can be purchased for the 6:45 PM screening with or without the wine tasting.

Then you can head into Bell, Book and Candle glass in hand, ready for all the magical holiday fun with Kim Novak and Jimmy Stewart.

Gillian's struggles and sacrifices prove a bit discouraging from a feminist perspective, but it's still a delightful movie, and the soundtrack is fantastic.

This whimsical comedy about modern-day witches stars Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak in their second teaming (after Vertigo), but it's the supporting cast that shines.

Stewart, playing the foil, deserves better material, and the movie's midsection is perfunctory. But the fun quotient is high ...
