Arsenic and Old Lace

Beware nice old ladies offering homemade wine! In this screwball comedy, Mortimer Brewster discovers that his two elderly aunts have a disturbing habit of poisoning lonely old men and burying them in their cellar. Add the antics of cousin Teddy (who thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt), Jonathan (an escaped convict) and crazy Brooklyn cops for one of the all-time great comedies.
