Arsenic and Old Lace (1944)



Reviews and Comments

Cary Grant made some of the greatest screwball comedies ever made; this is one. This fast-paced, madcap, slightly sinister comedy should delight anyone who loves to laugh. The plot is complicated, but it all starts from Grant's frightful realization that his two sweet elderly aunts have been poisoning lonely travellers and burying them in the basement. But they mean well.
