Arsenic and Old Lace (23-Sep-1944)|
Director: Frank Capra

From a play by: Joseph Kesselring

Keywords: Dark Comedy, Halloween, Brooklyn, New York
Newly married Mortimer Brewster visits his two elderly aunts, where to his horror he discovers their hobby of euthanising lonely elderly men with arsenic-elderberry wine; nephew Teddy, who honestly thinks he is Theodore Roosevelt, digs the Panama Canal in the basement, burying the fresh cadavers as victims of yellow fever. Other family members are equally out of their minds.

Cary Grant at his hilarious best. A must for all his fans. All actors brilliant. Ageless and priceless humour.
