“Twinkle-Twinkle”, known for her iconic nose-twitching role as Samantha Stephens on the popular 1960s television show Bewitched, Elizabeth Montgomery has been immortalized by this statue in downtown Salem. TV Land dedicated this monument in 2005 for the amazing character portrayal she demonstrated throughout the duration of the show.
In fact, four episodes of the television show were filmed in Salem, and locals even said that there was a rise in tourism following its feature on Bewitched. The six-foot tall statue represents the bewitching “Samantha” aboard a broom with the crescent of the moon behind her as was shown on the shows intro.
The statues nose has been worn over time as people try to “twitch” her nose. This statue receives millions of visitors each year and is a wonderful tribute to the television series.
