  • Arsenic And Old Lace [1944]
    Brian Greenaway

    What do you mean you've not seen this classic film? Many modern comedies are not a patch on this. Cary Grant at his best and with Peter Lorrie and Raymond Massey in great roles and Frank Capra's directing it is an excellent formula for success. And for under a fiver from most retailers - what a great buy!

  • Arsenic And Old Lace [1944]

    Brilliant film for fans of Cary Grant - his facial expressions are an absolute must! Reminiscent of the old farces played on stage. Brilliant! One of the best Cary Grant comedies. Never fails to make me laugh.
