Arsenic and Old Lace
No one is in town so we had nothing to do last night...so my temporary roommate Katherine and i watched "Arsenic and Old Lace." Such a funny movie!
The two old ladies, the Brewster Sisters, are the sweetest people ever, and part of their charitable work includes poisoning lonely old men and burying them in their cellar, so the men can finally have peace. Sounds bizarre, but somehow they make it an act of love. Throw a newlywed theater critic, a wanna-be Teddy Roosevelt, a psycho murder and his Asian accomplice, a frustrated bride, and 3 clueless policemen in the mix, and it's a hilarious time!
I promise they all end up happily ever after. Except for the psycho murderer. But everyone else is happy.
