BELL, BOOK AND CANDLE
Tuesday, October 31
Directed by Richard Quine
Starring Kim Novak and James Stewart
(1958) Greenwich Village witch Kim Novak, with cat/familiar Pyewacket in tow, can get any man to fall for her, of course, but loses those sorcery skills when the feeling’s mutual—in this case with publisher James Stewart, who’s equally bedeviled by boozing author Ernie Kovacs and Kim’s bongo-playing bro Jack Lemmon. DCP. Approx. 103 min.
“It’s hard to resist Kim Novak, in slinky beatnik chic, as she bewitches a straight-arrow James Stewart… The fun quotient is high.”
– Michael Sragow, The New Yorker
