Definitive Witch

The sharply etched features of a consummate actress remain in the mind forever. Margaret Hamilton in "The Wizard of Oz" gave to the world the image of the definitive witch!

As she pursued Dorothy across the endless vault of time, we can and will hear that wild, gloating laugh. And who knows but that Miss Hamilton could be seen on a moonlit night, riding upon her bike, vigorously across the heavens? Especially at Halloween! Yes, indeed!
