Today's Witch-A-Day post presents Angela Lansbury as Eglantine Price in Bedknobs and Broomsticks. Miss Price had been enrolled in the Emelius Brown Correspondence College of Witchcraft. She didn't realize that it was a con and the spells she received were found in an old spellbook of a sorceror named Astoroth that Professor Brown jumbled up and gave a flair (which changed the results of some of the spells). She wanted the Substitutiary Locomotion spell which would have given life to inanimate objects so she could help with the war effort against the Nazis. Though the spells were just a bunch of words to most people, Miss Price had the power to make them work.
