Program Description

Event Details

Larry Wolff will present the history of Arsenic and Old Lace, a film that displays Cary Grant’s wildest and funniest role. Simultaneously dark, slapstick-filled, and hysterical, the story features two elderly sisters who poison their boarders, and a nephew who engages them in a murder contest! Learn about the original Broadway play starring Boris Karloff, and see how Frank Capra planned and completed the film. Following the lecture, the film will be shown in its entirety.
