The Cinema Arts Theatre started a new series of Movies in the Morning this week. Hopefully that means that they are doing well enough to continue for a while…Andrew and I are certainly enjoying them. This morning’s flick? Arsenic and Old Lace from 1944 with Cary Grant. I’d never seen this movie nor the play that it’s based on. Mortimer Brewster stops at his aunts’ house on his way from the courthouse to his honeymoon, only to find a body in his aunts’ window seat. He finds that his sweet old aunts have been offering their “charity” to lonely old men. Mortimer’s plans to help out his aunt are made more difficult by his fiance, his brother who thinks he’s Theodore Rosevelt, and the sudden appearance of his criminally insane brother. This movie was great fun.
