With a twitch of her nose, Samantha Stephens cast a spell over a generation of TV viewers and made Elizabeth Montgomery a star. But there was more to Bewitched than met the eye. Despite the show’s enchanting premise and innocence, it was a lightning rod for controversy in the 1960s. E! takes you behind the magic of the sitcom to explore the lives of Montgomery and her husband Bewitched producer William Asher, and the two “Darrins”: Dick York, whose chronic back pain and pain-pill dependency drove him from the show, and Dick Sargent, who desperately tried to keep his homosexuality under wraps. Interviews with cast members, friends, family and the shows creators highlight this 2 hour documentary. Originally broadcast on August 22, 1999.
