Arsenic and Old Lace

Entertaining and hilarious comedy about the recently wed Mortimer Brewster, played by Cary Grant, arriving at his two old aunt's house to inform them of this good news. However, Mortimer finds out something about his aunts that he probably never wanted to know: they have somehow gotten into the habit of poisoning guests. Insanely maniacal, "Arsenic and Old Lace" is among the funniest movies of all time.
