Arsenic and Old Lace back to product details

Still hilarious after all these years

This delightful black comedy still holds up well. Based on a stage play that originally featured Boris Karloff (in the role of Jonathon), the movie cast is perfect. Cary Grant's double-takes, Peter Lorre's world-weary nervousness, John Alexander's Teddy Roosevelt glares, Josephine Hull's bouncy gait... it all works.

"Insanity runs in my family... It practically gallops."



I could swear that one of the portraits above the staircase is in Disneyland's Haunted Mansion ride.
