Arsenic and Old Lace

Arsenic and Old Lace

A film by Frank Capra
Starring Cary Grant

Two sweet old ladies with well-intentioned homicidal tendencies poison lonely old men as a “charity” and bury them in the cellar. No sooner does their nephew Mortimer (Cary Grant) find out about this (while preparing to leave for his honeymoon no less!) than his long-lost homicidal brother (Raymond Massey) returns, proving Mortimer to be the only one in the family who isn’t a crazed killer! Frank Capra’s electrifying adaptation of the famed stage play set the bar high for all future black comedies.
