Lent: Part 32

Bell Book and Candle (1958) – As far as Kim Novak/Jimmy Stewart movies go, this beats the hell out of Vertigo, but maybe I was just in a bad mood for Vertigo. This makes it sound like a low bar to clear, but to avoid being misunderstood, I really loved Bell Book and Candle. The script is great, the actors are well cast–even the supporting cast is spectacular–it’s hard to find fault with anything here.

Okay, uh… how about… the door of the Zodiac nightclub only has ten signs of the actual zodiac around it. There, that’s a flaw.
