Description
Cary Grant and a stellar cast romp through this classic farce on DVD—Arsenic and Old Lace—based on Joseph Kesselring's 1941 Broadway hit, and breezily directed by Frank Capra. Frazzled drama critic Mortimer Brewster (Grant) has two aunts (Josephine Hull and Jean Adair) who play lonely geezers with poisoned libations, one sociopathic brother (Raymond Massey) who looks like Boris Karloff, one insane brother (John Alexander) who thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt, one impatient new bride (Priscilla Lane)—and only one night to make it turn out alright. In this circus' center ring is Grant, twisting his face into a clown's gallery of flabbergasted reactions and transforming his natural athletic grace into a rubber-legged comic ballet. This video will have you dying laughing.

            There was no continuity to the movie. At times it was just plain ridiculous. Too much slap-stick acting.

                        Cary Grant made so many wonderful movies, each one a classic but in my opinion, this one is by far his best comedic performance ever. The aunts are so adorable its hard to believe what they do. The part of Teddy is played to perfection and brother Jonathan and the Doctor are a scream, literally.I love this movie and will watch it over and over again.

                                        This is a wonderful old movie. Funny. Cary Grant is awesome is this role. Hysterical.

                                                  I have been introducing old movies to my "adult" 11 yr old grandson. Our performing arts center has had Harvey and Arsenic and Old Lace in the past couple of years so we watched the movie first. He loved both of them. Needless to say, they are two of my favorites too!
