My Sister Eileen Richard Quine, 1955

Janet Leigh and Betty Garrett are a couple of sisters coming to New Yawk from their small town. They have big romantic dreams. One hopes to become a writer, another an actress. Janet Leigh is all bouncy and beautiful and untouchable. Garrett is all ready to be an old maid - she's never known love. Oh, but she'll give you romance. The two have wacky adventures and meet Bob Fosse and Jack Lemmon and fool around with some wrestlers and men of a distant land named Brazil. The numbers are lovely, the quips are hilarious, Leigh brightens up roujin's disgusting existence. The movies need nothing more. This is all there is.

Bell Book and Candle Richard Quine, 1958

Jimmy Stewart gets involved with Kim Novak, a woman who is apparently a witch. Feeling all lonely, Novak casts a spell on Stewart, which makes him go crazy for her. He dumps his fiancee (on their wedding day) and spends all his time at Novak's feet (like any sane and reasonable man should). But then complications occur. Oh, complications! The story's bizarre. There's apparently a wizard underworld in New York, with its own set of rules and stuff, that apparently operates out some random nightclub. Jack Lemmon plays the bongos, Ernie Kovacs boozes his way throughout the movie, and Kim Novak spends her time melting hearts and slinking around like a cat. Quine often uses garish lighting in order to show that magic is being done, but all this does is make everyone look sick in the face. Entertainment! Oh, Novak. . .

Everything but those ridiculous drawn on eyebrows. How could anyone think that made her look better? I remember watching Vertigo and being distracted by those two caterpillars above her eyes.
