ARSENIC AND OLD LACE. In Color.
ARSENIC AND OLD LACE.
CARY GRANT, PRISCILLA LANE, RAYMOND MASSEY & PETER LORRE.
Cary Grant delivers "a grand performance, the best comedy effort of his career" (Hollywood Reporter) in this outlandish tale of two gentle but highly lethal sisters who poison lonely old men as a charity act and then bury them with proper ceremony in the cellar of their Brooklyn boarding house. The plot thickens deliciously as Mortimer Brewster (Grant) discovers his elderly aunts' secret via a body in the window seat. But before he can get his bizarre brother Teddy (as in "Roosevelt") committed for the act, long-lost brother Jonathan (Raymond Massey in a delightfully diabolical portrayal) shows up with a body of his own.
Director Frank Capra, the master of comic timing keeps the action and hilarity moving at a head spinning pace. With a strong supporting cast that features Edward Everett Horton and Peter Lorre as a wonderfuly demented plastic surgeon, Arsenic and Old Lace is perhaps the most renowned black farce of all time.
