Bell, Book and Candle (1958) ruined for me

Isn't Romantic Comedy redundant?

Hahahahahahahahaha! That's too funny, Masha!

Perhaps Pyewacket is actually a human she turned into a cat?

It's just a thought.

Oh Masha, I think you have captured the philosophy of a cat owner only too well.

I used to own two cats before I became allergic to them, and would wake to find them just in the process of knocking an Orrefors vase(or equally sentimental or valuable item) off the shelves. I am convinced that they come to wake you up in order to witness first hand the destruction of your things, but without enough time to do anything about it.

Masha, you are so droll!

I always thought that Pyewacket controlled everything that happens in Bell, Book and Candle--not the mere humans--none of whom seem as sophisticated or aware of the black arts as that Siamese wizard of necromancy.

That was really brilliant Masha, I want to go back and watch again, with the insights you and Moira wrote about in mind.

Masha:

It may help you to know that I've always thought Piewacket was a person who returned as a cat who emphasized and embellished Gillians' wishes. BTW, I know you were involved in movies in some way, but were you a writer? Your writing form is so very entertaining.
