Frank Capra's Arsenic and old lace by Joseph Kesselring( Visual )

5 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and held by 1,812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mirthful murder Cary-ed off in slapstick, slap-happy style! Cary Grant and a stellar cast romp through this classic farce based on Joseph Kesselring's 1941 Broadway hit and breezily directed by Frank Capra. Frazzled drama critic Mortimer Brewster (Grant) has two aunts (Josephine Hull and Jean Adair) who ply lonely geezers with poisoned libations, on sociopathic brother (Raymond Massey) who looks like Boris Karloff, one bonkers brother (John Alexander) who thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt, one impatient new bride (Priscilla Lane) -- and only one night to make it turn out all right. In this circus' center ring is Grant, twisting his face into a clown's gallery of flabbergasted reactions and transforming his natural athletic grace into a rubber-legged comic ballet. You'll die laughing. - Container

Mrs. Mary Prescott, the U.S. delegate to the U.N., has presented proposals that a U.N. committee should discuss the areas of agreement between the member countries, rather than the differences. On the night Mary is to make an important speech on the proposals, the Czech delegate, with whom she had once had a romantic affair, comes to her home, where he dies of a sudden heart attack. A few minutes after this, the English, French, Russian and Pakistani delegates arrive at Mary's apartment for cocktails. The four delegates remove the body to the Czechoslovakian headquarters where it can be found without compromising Mary or her proposals and they all pledge secrecy. However, one of the four delegates breaks his oath and phones the police. The resulting international complications threaten to wreck the proposals and the lives of those involved, until the guilty delegate reveals his basic humanity and vindicates Mary. There is also a romance between Mary and a radio commentator who has reserved judgment on her proposals, and during the course of the play she wins both the commentator and his approval of her political action
