Tuning In to TV
Question of the Day
According to harpiesbizarre.com, Mr. Saks drew inspiration for the story about a witch who weds a mortal man from two films: “I Married a Witch” (1942), starring Fredric March and Veronica Lake, and “Bell Book and Candle” (1958), with James Stewart and Kim Novak.
Mr. Saks, discussing the similarities of the “Bewitched” storyline with the two movies in a 1999 episode of “E! True Hollywood Story,” said he didnt have to worry about being sued because Columbia Pictures owned both of the movies as well as the Screen Gems television division.
“Bewitched,” which starred Elizabeth Montgomery as the beautiful nose-twitching witch, ran from 1964 to 1972.
‘Boardwalk Empire’ actress arraigned on assault
Television actress Paz de la Huerta derided a former reality TV figure as a “fake actress” after attacking her in a trendy hotel bar, prosecutors said Tuesday.
The “Boardwalk Empire” actress was arraigned on assault and other charges in her encounter last month with Samantha Swetra, who appeared on the MTV reality series “The City.”
Miss de la Huerta, who went to court wearing a long black coat and a white pantsuit over a black turtleneck, didn’t speak during her brief court appearance. She was released without bail.
“We’re asking people not to rush to judgment and to let [Miss de la Huerta] have her day in court,” defense lawyer Jamel Oeser-Sweat said.
Miss Swetra’s attorney didn’t immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
Miss de la Huerta punched Miss Swetra in the face, giving her a bloody nose, and hurled a glass that left cuts in Miss Swetra’s leg around 4 a.m. on March 20 at the Standard Hotel, authorities say in a court complaint.
Miss de la Huerta plays politician Enoch “Nucky” Thompson’s hot-tempered ex-girlfriend, Lucy Danziger, on the popular “Boardwalk Empire.”
