Arsenic and Old Lace

1944. USA. Directed by Frank Capra. With Cary Grant, Josephine Hull, Jean Adair, Raymond Massey. Be prepared for gut-busting laughs in this Frank Capra classic. Confirmed bachelor Mortimer Brewster has railed against marriage for years, but once he takes the plunge he has to tell his eccentric maiden aunts. This outrageous farce puts Grant’s comedy chops to their best use ever. The aunts are a match for Grant’s hysterics, especially when they meet a new bachelor and serve up elderberry wine. 118 min.
