00:15seasons but Samantha's signature Twitchy
00:17nose is something nearly everyone still
00:19recognizes to this day
00:21multiple spin-offs hit the Airways over
00:23the years but none of them could quite
00:25capture what the original series did so

01:05anti-aging potion in real life
01:08Elizabeth was a beautiful young woman in
01:11the 1960s and well into her later years
01:13she must have used an anti-aging spell
01:16on herself seriously she probably just
01:18took excellent care of herself
01:20exercising and eating the appropriate
01:22Foods
01:23despite the fact that she appeared to be
01:24healthy on the outside she was actually

01:38being signed on to play Darren Stevens
01:40however while the pilot searched for
01:42someone to fill Samantha's role Sergeant
01:45took another job we'll never know how
01:47krenna would have done if he'd been
01:48seriously considered for the part or how
01:51differently the show might have turned
01:52out with a different actor playing
01:53Darren

02:50condura dick tore most of the muscles on
02:53the right side of his back and was
02:55prescribed pain medication by doctors

03:20he was rushed to the hospital he never
03:21returned and the series went darinless
03:24for several episodes until dick Sergeant

03:51Family
03:52not a popular choice to add children

04:38posthumously however she began the
04:40decision to conceal her illness from her
04:42fellow cast members and show producers

04:46just begun and her passing came as a
04:48surprise to everyone in the business
04:52the truth behind their costumes
04:56in the TV business it was standard
04:58practice to try to minimize expenditures
04:59for new programs and even some
05:01well-established series at that time in
05:03the program's popularity this was also a
05:06great method for supporting cast members
05:07to bring their own Flair into their
05:09parts
05:12official broach
05:14Agnes Moorhead often sported a starburst
05:17approach with eight and a half carats of

05:56cold shoulder
05:58Moorhead as stated before enjoyed York's
06:01work on TV and was distressed when Dick
06:03Sergeant replaced him it turns out that
06:05those disagreements may have actually
06:07helped improve one friendship on the set
06:09of Bewitched Elizabeth Montgomery and

06:13they stuck by each other during tough
06:15times while filming the series

06:31obsessive love of them the actress had a
06:34collection of over 1 000 antique

06:39would collect doorknobs from old doors
06:41nevertheless watching any collector
06:43program on TV today will reveal that
06:45such knobs can be quite valuable and
06:47sought after by collectors

08:10the secret behind Samantha's Magic
08:13in the 1960s before CGI made magic with
08:17the push of a button stagehands had to
08:19work hard to produce Samantha's magic
08:21Elizabeth Montgomery would stand in
08:23place with her arms up while the
08:25director yelled cut and frantic
08:26stagehands ran onto the set to remove
08:28any clutter it wasn't as high-tech or
08:31based on today's standards but it worked
08:33quickly and provided a low-cost solution
08:35that fueled the show's Magic
08:39the show ended because its star wanted
08:41out
08:43before bewitch started series star
08:45Elizabeth Montgomery had considered
08:47retiring from acting Bill Asher her

09:16sense of humor
09:18in an interview with Fox News in 2017
09:21Aaron Murphy who played Tabitha on the
09:23show spoke about the cast while
09:25Elizabeth Montgomery may have seemed
09:27like a goody two-shoes Murphy says she
09:30wasn't scared to get her hands dirty she
09:32had a filthy sense of humor she was just
09:34one of those people who was so beautiful
09:36but didn't mind looking silly kind of
09:38like Lucille Ball they could read really
09:40campy and funny there was no hesitation
09:42there
09:44Samantha's unorthodox arm workouts
09:48Elizabeth was told not to drop her arms
09:50because there was no CGI and everything
09:53had to be manually performed and
09:54relocated on set
09:56Elizabeth was required to keep her arms
09:58in the same position while the director
09:59yelled cut and everyone else moved
10:02around her she was only permitted to
10:04lower her arms and continue the scene
10:05after the director shouted action
10:09the mysterious theme song
10:13the famous song does in fact have words
10:15the words are never sung during the
10:17show's opening credits but the theme for
10:18Bewitched did have lyrics You've Got Me
10:21under your spell sings one of the lyrics
10:24fading to listen to what ended up in The
10:25Cutting Room floor before the program
10:27aired
10:30Darren's perspective
10:32the lyrics to Bewitched theme song are
10:34pretty interesting when you think about
10:36it they were written from Darren's
10:37perspective as if he knew his wife was a
10:40witch of course they could also be
10:42interpreted as being about a man who's
10:43simply Spellbound by the woman he's in
10:45love with either way it's an interesting
10:47little piece of trivia
10:50Elizabeth Montgomery's obituary is so
10:52wrong
10:54Elizabeth Montgomery was a private
10:56person who never divulged her age or
10:58other personal information to the public
10:59even at the time of her death only her
11:0257 years were published when she was
11:04actually 62.
11:06similarly because Elizabeth chose not to
11:08reveal her marriage to Robert Foxworth
11:10publicly several obituaries listed her
11:13as a living single even though she
11:15wasn't
11:17death certificate inconsistencies
11:20did you know that the late Hollywood
11:22Superstar Elizabeth Montgomery had her
11:24own age and marital status and gregly
11:26listed on her obituaries not to mention
11:29even her death certificate got her own
11:31name wrong
11:32if you take a look at it you'll see that
11:33it lists her full name as Elizabeth a
11:35Montgomery however Avid fans of hers
11:38will remember that her middle name was
11:39Victoria not Anne nevertheless she kept
11:43fairly private given how often she was
11:45in the public eye
11:46[Music]
11:47drunk on set
11:50Bewitched on the other hand was filmed
11:52in the 1960s and alcohol consumption was
11:54regarded far more lightly in America
11:56than it is today
11:57various hollywood-based Unions would not
12:00allow the usage of alcohol on a working
12:02set nowadays
12:04record-breaking drinking habits
12:07the rules were more stringent when
12:09children were on set according to the
12:11show actors were instructed to imitate
12:13the appearance of various alcoholic
12:15beverages with iced tea
12:17in a moment of Life imitating art Dick
12:19Wilson frequently played a drunk on the
12:21series
12:23Elizabeth almost didn't make the cut
12:26the show's Creator saw sex earnestly
12:28wanted an actress by the name of Tammy
12:30Grimes to play his lead witch who was
12:33first supposed to be called Cassandra
12:35not Samantha sex like that Grimes had a
12:38natural elephant look however in the end
12:40Saul Sachs and Bill Asher chose
12:42Elizabeth Montgomery for the role it's
12:45hard to Envision anyone else playing her
12:46part so perfectly especially someone who
12:48doesn't fit the description of looking
12:50elfish
12:52Cassandra wasn't meant to be
12:55Grimes was replaced by Elizabeth
12:56Montgomery as the female lead and
12:59although she auditioned for the original
13:00role she remained under contract with
13:02screen gems and was unable to take the
13:04part
13:05the character was renamed Samantha
13:07Elizabeth Montgomery was cast and
13:09history continued to move forward
13:11Grime starred in numerous movies and on
13:13Broadway for many years after that she
13:15passed away in 2016 at the age of 82.
13:20home is where the magic is
13:23for the Bewitched set the house from
13:25which Gidget was filmed was duplicated
13:27and reversed the patio and interior
13:30living rooms were duplicates from an
13:31earlier Gidget film this was a common
13:34practice for movie studios to get the
13:35most out of their money when they had
13:37limited funds and needed to recycle
13:38[Music]
13:40Gladys Kravitz's hand-me-down
13:44the lot and neighborhood known as
13:46Blondie Street after the early serial
13:48movie of Blondie and Dagwood Bumstead
13:50had been used for about 50 years its
13:53made appearance is in a variety of
13:54television shows and sets in different
13:56time periods for example during the Run
13:58of Bewitched Samantha and Darren's nosy
14:00neighbor Mrs Kravitz also lived in the
14:03Partridge home
14:04the debut of The Partridge Family came
14:06before the end of Bewitched run so for
14:08two series both families shared a home
14:10on screen
14:13Gladys Kravitz and The Partridge Family
14:16the house was lived in by The Partridge
14:18Family and Gladys Kravitz was a modest
14:21two-story house with a white picket
14:22fence the fence was taken down in 1999
14:25and bay windows now replaced the front
14:27windows used in the Bewitched days the
14:29front door is also fairly different the
14:31picture below is from the year 2000 if
14:34you're facing the Partridge house the
14:35home next door to the right was used in
14:38I Dream of Jeannie as Major Nelson and
14:40Jeannie's house more of that later
14:42when filming The Partridge Family about
14:44three feet of Genie's front yard had to
14:46be removed in order to widen the
14:48driveway to accommodate the bus
14:50it's since been restored to its original
14:52win
14:55there were two tabithas
14:57the casting of twin sisters Aaron and
15:00Diane Murphy as the Steven's daughter
15:02Tabitha was arranged
15:04it's typical for twins to be utilized
15:05particularly for roles involving babies
15:07because the role was shared the
15:09youngsters could work on set at
15:11different times avoiding any accusation
15:13of child labor laws being broken this
15:15method is still in use today
15:19a natural Talent
15:21well one baby may have been favored over
15:23the other due to their distinct
15:24personalities they still received equal
15:26credit for the part
15:29War of the witches
15:31when I Dream of Jeannie debuted on NBC
15:34only one year after ABC aired its
15:37popular show Bewitched people drew
15:39comparisons between the two Elizabeth
15:41Montgomery was not pleased by this turn
15:43of events in fact even now casual
15:46viewers often mix up some episodes from
15:48the shows
15:51nothing personal
15:53Elizabeth Montgomery never felt any
15:55personal animosity toward either I dream
15:57of Jeannie's Stars Barbara Eden or Larry

16:01gorgeous blonde women with magical
16:03powers Genie was a two thousand year old
16:06Genie Who falls in love with a NASA
16:08astronaut and they shared similar
