Arsenic and Old Lace

In honor of today being the anniversary of Peter Lorre's death I declared a 1-day Lorre Blogathon. I've linked my posts on Peter Lorre's films here.

Arsenic and Old Lace, released in 1944, is directed by Frank Capra and stars Cary Grant, Josephine Hull, Raymond Massey, Peter Lorre, Jack Carson, James Gleason and Edward Everett Horton.

YouTube has it online divided into 15 sections. Part 1:

part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7, part 8, part 9, part 10, part 11, part 12, part 13, part 14, part 15

The New York Times opens its review with this:
As a whole "Arsenic and Old Lace," the Warner picture which came to the Strand yesterday, is good macabre fun.
Moria calls it "a likeable amusement". Variety.com says it's a "diversion of a very agreeable character".

6/25/2009: The Husband got this DVD for Father's Day and chose it to watch tonight.
