Bell Book and Candle in Three Parts

The Look, The Apartment, and The Tea Pot I Need To Have

I know it is Dec. 30, but I am still in the Christmas after glow.  I am enjoying all my gifts.  My brother gave me the Bell Book and Candle dvd.  It's a movie I love to watch all year long.  Although you may think of Halloween when you hear it is about witches, it takes place during Christmas.

What happens when a witch, Gillian Holroyd (Kim Novak) meets a handsome publisher, Shep Henderson (James Stewart)?  She just has to have him.  When she finds out he is about to marry her old nemesis from her college days, there's no time to let nature take it's course.  So Gillian uses her familiar, the siamese cat Pyewaket, to put a love spell on Shep.  But in the end Gillian will find that true love is more powerful than magic.

The movie was filmed in 1958.  I just love the stylized look of the costumes, makeup and furnishings.
