  1. Dawn, I recorded Phffft!, but haven't been able to watch it; I have been busy with the holidays. I definitely want to watch Bell, Book and Candle on January 1st. Thanks for letting us know TCM will be playing these films.

  2. Silent, you are welcome. I remembered that you wanted to see them. I'm a huge Kim Novak fan so I enjoyed both movies. Although.. Bell Book Candle is my favorite of the two.
