Arsenic and Old Lace DVD

SKU ID #335073
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.
