As she burns at the stake, 17th century witch Jennifer (Veronica Lake), places a curse on her accuser, Jonathan Wooley (Fredric March - in multiple generational roles), hexing all the future men in his family with bad luck in love. When she returns three centuries later, via a lightning bolt hitting the tree she was killed on, Jennifer wishes to make the latest in the Wooley clan, Wallace, fall in love with her and torment him thus. The only problem is that she accidentally drinks the love potion intended for Jonathan and swiftly proceeds to fall in love with him! The course of true love never did run smoothly, and even less so as Jennifer's, similarly executed, father returns and Estelle, Jonathan's socialite fiancée, gets involved!

Having seen this DVD I was appalled to discover that the film looks infinitely sharper and brighter on my old VHS copy when compared to the DVD. The film was made in 1942 - the same year as 'Casablanca' - anyone who has seen that DVD will know how good a film from that era can look if it is restored properly. Obviously 'I Married A Witch' is unlikely to recieve the attention of a famous classsic like 'Casabalanca', but there is no excuse for putting out this film using such an awful, fuzzy, washed-out print - when better quality ones are clearly in existence.
It was inevitable that the evil father and daughter witch team would return to do more mischief. Will this backfire and will he or she learn from not to be so evil or will they keep it bottled up?
You may be able to identify with the curse. So you need to be sure your spouse sees you laugh at this.
This is one of those situation comedies that you just assume they end up to grater. Don't be too sure.
There is really very little resemblance between this story and the situation comedy "Bewitched".
I have has several copies as they slowly improve the picture and even the sound. The best copy at the time of this review is I Married a Witch (Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray]. They used a 2k restoration process. There are a couple of times that it looks like they missed; however for the most part it is a perfect restoration. There is no voice over commentary or making of extras.

This review is from: I Married a Witch [DVD] (DVD)
Rene Clair's I Married a Witch is one of the most delightful screwball comedies ever made, with a dark wit and a mischievous sense of fun that makes it absolutely irresistible. Unfortunately the same cannot be said of the DVD releases its received thus far. The UK release from Public Domain merchants Cornerstone Media is the kind of typically bad third or fourth dupe print that the label is notorious for - no remastering, no extras and quite a struggle to watch at times. The French PAL release from Universal that's available via Amazon.fr (under its French title Ma Femme est une Sorciere) is a distinct improvement, taken from a much better source with a French-language featurette and poster gallery as extra - but while it does have an English soundtrack, it also has burnt-in unremoveable French subtitles, making for a somewhat distracting viewing experience for non-French viewers. Yet that's still the best way to watch it unless it turns up on TV again (the BBC had a very respectable print they used to run in the 80s), and certainly a better bet than Cornerstone's shoddy offering.
Thankfully the film has finally been rescued from Public Domain Hell by Criterion, whose Region A-locked Blu-ray and Region 1 NTSC DVD releases offer the film in a fine transfer. Aside from an informative booklet there are only a couple of extras - an audio interview with Rene Clair and the original trailer - but it's well worth spending the extra rather than throwing your money away on the UK Cornerstone release.

It's an enjoyable little film, amusing rather than funny, but a nice way to spend an hour and a quarter.
