A madcap dark comedy that is as funny as it is famous, Arsenic and Old Lace focuses on the elderly Brewster sisters, the town darlings who have a little secret. Their nephew Mortimer discovers they are "helping" lonely gentlemen boarders to early graves by way of homemade, arsenic-laced wine. Add a brother who thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt, a criminal on the run and the girl Mortimer wants to marry — and you have a recipe for hilarity.
