ARSENIC AND OLD LACE (US 1944, dir. by Frank Capra.)

Mortimer (Cary Grant) is a drama critic, and has two delightful maiden aunts.  Except that they take such pity on lonely old men that they poison them and bury them in the cellar.  Mortimer’s brother (Raymond Massey) is even more sinister, and has an incompetent assistant (Peter Lorre).  Nevertheless, Arsenic and Old Lace was a huge success as a farce, and is one of the funniest screwball comedies you can see. (Running Time  118 minutes)
