Arsenic and Old Lace
Mortimer Brewster (Grant) visits his elderly aunts, only to uncover their deadly deeds.
Dir Frank Capra
With Cary Grant, Priscilla Lane, Raymond Massey, Peter Lorre
Newly married Mortimer Brewster visits his elderly aunts, only to discover that these sweet women are harbouring a terrible secret; they murder lonely gentlemen in the belief that they’re ending their suffering. Grant was unhappy with his performance, but it’s delightfully overplayed as things go from bad to worse in Frank Capra’s dark comedy, now considered a stone-cold classic.
