Arsenic and Old Lace

An hilarious adaptation of Joseph Kesselring's hit play about two seemingly harmless old ladies who murder lonely gentlemen callers - out of the goodness of their hearts. Cary Grant is their treasured nephew about to tie the knot and in no way ready to dig up the family skeletons. The excellent cast includes a scene-stealing turn from Peter Lorre.
