Arsenic and Old Lace screening (2017-Dec-28 @ 7:30 p.m.)
Thursday, December 28, 2017 @ 19:30–21:28
The Dryden will screen Arsenic and Old Lace (Frank Capra, U.S. 1944, 118 min., 35mm) as part of the Capra, and Holidays series.
This charmingly morbid screwball comedy teams up director Capra and leading man Cary Grant for their only film together. The complex story involves two elderly sisters who commit "mercy" killings, Grant as their drama critic nephew, his new bride, and his two brothers—one who is convinced he's Teddy Roosevelt and the other a serial killer on the run with a drunken plastic surgeon played by Peter Lorre.
