I Married a Witch, which deals with spirits, is a fantastic type of story that carries some interest on the novelty angles, if nothing else, but on the whole is generally tepid.

The story opens in 1690 in New England where a strait-laced Puritan condemns a sorcerer and his witch daughter who are burned at the stake. As a result, a curse is laid on the Puritan and any of his descendants, the action then jumping to the present when Fredric March, a descendant, is running for election as governor. He is in love with the daughter of a publisher backing him. The romance is upset and it appears that March is going to lose in consequence of the actions taken by two departed spirits.

Neither March nor Veronica Lake impresses very importantly, while Robert Benchley has not been well equipped with material designed to afford comic relief.
