Cary Grant

Dir Frank Capra

Certificate PG

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.
