Arsenic and Old Lace
My Rating:
(out of 5 stars)
3.5 Stars
Arsenic and Old Lace Poster
Primary Location: First Saw:On TV Saw at/with:
Rating: NR Year: 1944 Category: Comedy
Director: Frank Capra Time: 121 min. Writer: Joseph Kesselring & Julius J. Epstein

Mine: Cary Grant at his best. VERY funny. A real classic.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Hilarious adaptation of Joseph Kesselring's hit play (scripted by the Epstein bros. ) about two seemingly harmless old ladies who poison lonely gentlemen callers. Frantic cast is excellent, especially Lorre and Massey as unsuspecting murderers holed up in Brooklyn household. Made in 1941. Hull, Adair, and Alexander repeat their Broadway roles. Also shown in computer-colored version.
