What if you married a beautiful woman and afterward you found out that she just happens to be a witch?! This is the plot of one of sitcoms most loved Emmy award winning TV series Bewitched. Now thanks to Mill Creek we can relive the first season of this TV Classic over and over again on DVD.

The first season is presented in the original black and white. Elizabeth Mongomery stars as the beautiful witch Samantha and her loving, but mortal husband Darrin is played by the great Dick York.
