      So THAT's why all of those JOLS that turn up have holes in the bottom. Great collection of images, I can't believe I missed these on your stream before!

      Not only that, but of course Mz Lake starred in "I Married a Witch" in the 1940s.

      BTW, not only am I pretty sure it's the 1940s (her career started spiraling in the 1950s), she had what looks like the old "Peek-a-boo" cut, which she had to chop down during the build up of women war workers in factories, on account of them copying her hairstyle and getting their hair stuck in gears.

      That's interesting. I'd never heard that term before, peek a boo cut. She certainly looks as they used to say "fetching".

      When I think of the Hollywood witch, Veronica Lake always comes to mind. She was the original, Bewitched! I wish I could get away with dressing like that. ;)

      No kidding. She was drop dead gorgeous, she could totally carry it off. She was classic and a little bit dangerous at the same time. I would like to dress like that!

      I really wish they would put I married a witch back into print, last I checked you can not get a copy of it.

      Yeah, I just love this one in particular too. The wall of pulp jacks and Veronica Lake is just gorgeous in it, I love her costume. Everything's perfect. There's so much going on in this shot.
