"she's not a witch, she's my wife"

isn't she darling.  precious little eva.  she could hardly pass for an evil witch.  i love those soulful eyes. 

i also love the movie from where the title of this post comes from.

some other interesting facts from imdb... a little obsession of mine whenever i watch an older movie.

During the filming of some scenes, the weather became markedly cold for Robin Wright. André the Giant helped her by placing one of his hands over her head; his hands were so large that one would entirely cover the top of her head, keeping her warm.

Iocaine powder is a fictional poison.

While rehearsing for the film, André the Giant's thick accent prevented many of his lines from being understood. To remedy this, actor Mandy Patinkin slapped André in the face to get him to concentrate harder.

Most of the movie was filmed on location in England. The castle used for the film dated back to 1065 and had original tapestries on the walls.

Mandy Patinkin claims that the only injury he sustained during the entire filming of this movie was a bruised rib due to stifling his laughter in his scenes with Billy Crystal.
