My Crazy Obsession
A zany yet loveable character on Bewitched, Aunt Clara was well known for her obsession with door knobs. You might think that is too specific for writers to dream up in the writer’s room, and you’d be right. The inspiration for this character’s hobby was based on her real life door knob collection.
Yet another thing from real life that a supporting character got to interject on the show, Marion Lorne who played Aunt Clara enjoyed collecting door knobs and owned an entire collection. This translated to her on-screen character’s love of the items. Interesting enough, antique door knobs are true collectibles and can sell for a lot of money.
