What is it about "Arsenic and Old Lace"? When you hear or see this title, I’ll bet for many of you, an image of old ladies in black dresses, with shawls and "funny hats", comes to mind. Why? Probably because you remember seeing the movie by the same title, starring Cary Grant, in which he plays a drama critic with two aunts who put their lonely lodgers out of their misery by poisoning them. This movie was one of Grant’s many comedic hits, and, one which, in my opinion, has stood the test of (funny) time. The stage play, which preceded the film, has also stood the test of time, as it is continually being performed.
