Facts about

Veronica Lake was best known for her iconic hair style of having her right eye covered. Many women copied the style which caused problems since they were working in war plants and their hair kept getting caught in the machinery. Lake was asked to change her style until after the war. When she did she lost her iconic look and her popularity soon faded along with her career.
Joel McCrea was initially cast as the lead, but declined the role because he didn't want to work again with Veronica Lake, his co-star in Sullivan's Travels.
Sol Sacks, creator of Bewitched, stated in an interview for "True Hollywood Story: Bewitched" that he drew inspiration both from "I Married a Witch" and "Bell, Book and Candle" (1958) in creating the iconic TV series. Columbia Pictures owned the rights to both of those movies. As it also owned the television studio that was to produce "Bewitched," Sacks didn't worry about getting sued.
