    Event Description:

    The famed television show, Bewitched, filmed a series of episodes in Salem in 1970. Though the crew’s time in Salem was short, the show made a lasting impact. In the episode featuring The House of the Seven Gables, Darrin and Samantha are followed back to their hotel by an enchanted bed warmer. The police are called and Samantha is forced to help Darrin get out of jail. Television and pop culture historian Robert Thompson will talk about Bewitched – as a show, statue, and icon of classic television. Join us for talk about this and an overview of the history of television and how it continues to impact us today. Robert J. Thompson is the founding director of the Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture and a Trustee Professor of Television and Popular Culture at Syracuse University. Dubbed a “pop culture ambassador” by the Associated Press, Robert Thompson has contributed to hundreds of radio and TV programs and publications.
