“Its a statue, erected just in time for the Bewitched Movie release”

Bewitched Statue of Elizabeth Montgomery

Certificate of Excellence

Reviewed 17 November 2013

eh, its a statue put up for the terrible (imo) Bewitched movie release, seems harmless until you realize that its put in a spot where the condemned would have to walk past to be hanged at Gallows hill.

While it's fun to see my favorite witch memorialized in bronze, the statue suffers from being under life-size and therefore lacks the dignity and power it should have if it were life-size or slightly over-size. Salem has some great sculpture and this could have lived up this tradition . Please see Henry Hudson Kitson's statue of Pilgrim Roger Conant - a great work. I suspect that the original clay model of Bewitched from which this statue was cast was life-size and looked pretty good. The problem came when it was cast in bronze and when nature took over and the bronze shrunk in cooling as it is want to do. There is a lesson here for those commissioning public work - specify the size of the finished piece clearly so that the size of the first model doesn't diminish the end result.

I thought the statue of Elizabeth Montgomery fun but a bit odd. I know they filmed episodes of Bewitched here in the 60's but I wondered how it sits alongside the sad history of witchcraft in Salem, not putting a downer on it.

If you’re a fan of the television show ‘Bewitched’… the statue is must for the photo op. It’s a fun “must do” in Salem.
