ARSENIC AND OLD LACE

United States | 1944 | Frank Capra

ARSENIC AND OLD LACE film still

Cary Grant stars in Frank Capra’s manic but beloved farce, in which a newly-married drama critic discovers that the two sweet old aunts who raised him have been poisoning lonely gentlemen and storing the bodies in their basement. Others in his embarrassing family prove similarly insane. Joseph Kesselring’s famous stage play was adapted by Julius J. and Philip G. Epstein, co-writers of Casablanca. “One of the best madcap black comedies of all time—a must-see.” –VideoHound’s Golden Movie Retriever. DCP. 118 min.
