Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

Un escritor a punto de casarse viaja a casa de unas ancianas tías para la despedida, descubriendo que se dedican a aliviar con arsénico las penas de los hombres solitarios. Los problemas aumentan cuando el hermano del escritor (convertido en delincuente) llega a la casa... Una estupenda comedia de humor negro y una de las películas cumbres de la filmografía de Frank Capra quien al ver la obra de teatro en Nueva York, corrió tras el escenario para comprar los derechos para cine. Un guión así no se le podía escapar. Aparte de la habilidad de Capra y del ingenio del diálogo, la película debe su éxito a Cary Grant, que borda su papel como nadie lo habría hecho.


Un maravilloso clásico de la comedia magistralmente dirigido por Frank Capra y protagonizado por Cary Grant, basado en el éxito teatral de Joseph Kesselring estrenado en Broadway en 1941. El crítico teatral MortimerBrewster (Grant) tiene dos ancianas tías

Es una película extraña y comienza divertida e interesante, pero a medida que avanza vas perdiendo el interés en la trama durante varias partes de la película. Se vuelve muy lenta y menos llamativa.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas THE funniest movie of all time!! 1 de octubre de 2006
Por Katy Lake - Publicado en
Formato: DVD Compra verificada
No matter how many times I see this, I laugh as if it were the first!

There is absolutely NOTHING that's a downside of this movie. The casting is inspired - Raymond Massey as the Boris Karloff lookalike, Jonathan, Peter Lorre as Dr. Einstein, and Cary Grant - just beyond perfect as Mortimer Brewster - the unseen Mr. Spinolzo, the "hot stiff in the rumbleseat."

I've always loved Cary Grant in a drama or comedy, but honestly, he is so freaking funny in this movie that no one can compare in any other vehicle.

Grant's conversation on the phone with the operator while he's trying to get the Happydale Sanitarium is priceless! (I often feel that same way when I'm on the phone with my HMO.) Meanwhile, Aunt Abby and Aunt Martha are trying to give some tainted elderberry wine to yet another unsuspecting old man they think is lonely and needs to be relieved of the burden of living.

When Grant gets off the phone, he's so frustrated he pours himself a glass of wine - elderberry wine, and Aunt Martha gives him an "uh uh UH!" and he drops the glass. But the potential border cum victim is about ready to drink his down, and Grant SCREAMS and chases him out of the house with, "Do you want to be poisoned? Do you want to be killed?" and trips over a chair.

Then there's the scene where he goes to the judge to get cousin Teddy (who thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt) committed to Happydale. The judge is an old stiff himself, and he tells Mortimer, "Tell Aunt Abby and Aunt Martha I'll be over. I've been a little lonely," to which Mortimer shouts, 'No, no! Don't ever tell them you're lonely! Tell me, Judge, are you a drinking man?"

The judge says, "Certainly not!" but adds as a relieved Mortimer is leaving, "Of course, a little wine now and then...." Mortimer screams, "Not wine! No wine! Don't drink wine!" The judge then wonders, "Maybe I committed the wrong Brewster."

Then there's the inimitable Jack Carson as the cop on the beat who is playwrite on the sly. His expressions are second only to Grant, particularly when he reacts to Teddy.

Priscilla Lane is perfect as Mortimer's fiance, Elaine (a small part, but oh, she does it perfectly.)

As you can tell, I've seen this movie so many times I've inadvertently memorized whole sections of dialogue. Since I never, ever rewatch movies until I've forgotten them, there's no higher compliment I can pay to "Arsenic and Old Lace."

I just pray no one ever tries to remake this classic. There isn't an actor alive who could hope to compare to the original cast in this masterpiece.

This movie is perfect, and if you haven't seen it, you are in for the best time of your life. I'll dig a lock to that! :)
5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A Dark and Delightful Comedy 19 de noviembre de 2005
Por John A Lee III - Publicado en

This is probably Grant's finest comedic role. He plays a New York drama critic who has just gotten married. He is about to take his bride to Niagara Falls and stops by home to get his things and let her get her own. (She's the girl next door). His two delightful aunts wish him well on his way but he finds a dead body hidden in the window seat. It turns out that his aunts have a bad habit of poisoning lonely old men to bring them peace. You would think that the bodies would pile up after a while but that's where Grant's brother comes in handy. His is crazy and thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt. The old dears just tell him that there has been another yellow fever victim and he heads down to Panama (the basement) to dig another lock (grave). These revelation are not what Grant needed to hear on his wedding day and he begins to scheme on how to conduct damage control.

Things get more complicated when his long lost brother shows up. He is an escaped murderer and needs a place to hide. He also has an extra dead body to dispose of. Things get more and more complicated and Grant, the only sane member of the family, just about goes crazy trying to protect his aunts from his brother, everyone from the police and himself from everyone else.

Raymond Massey plays the villain and is ably assisted by Peter Lorre as his assistant. Massey is a dark and brooding character right out of the horror films and Lorre is not really too bad deep down, only frightened. The aunts are a delight to watch. All do a fine job but it is Cary Grant who steals the show. He plays it over the top and is a delight to watch both in terms of physical comedy and muttered, running commentary.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas "Where'd you get that face? HOLLYWOOD?" 7 de marzo de 2003

Formato: DVD Compra verificada
One of my favorite lines in the movie, Cary Grant upon seeing his brother, Jonathan, after a long absence. Jonathan's companion, "Dr. Einstein", well played by Peter Lorre, got a litle overzealous while performing plastic surgery on his face, (this surgery necessitated by the fact that both men are serial killers) and the result is an unfortunate resemblance to Frankenstein...Dr. Einstein's excuse for the botched surgery is he had just seen the movie. My other favorite line is Peter Lorre who falls into the window seat and lights a match to see and says "Where am I? Oh, here I am..." Edward Everett Horton, as the proprietor of the local insane asylum, is also wonderful, as he always is, and is dismayed to hear that he is soon to have yet another Teddy Roosevelt on his hands; and pleads to Grant, when he is trying to admit his brother, (mistakenly believing he is responsible for the "body in the window seat") "Well, Mr. Brewster, we're a little short of Napoleons at the moment...Bonaparte...and if...oh, I see." The sisters are great, Hull and Adair, as is Teddy, and the lunacy and fun never stop. You can tell Raymond Massey hugely enjoyed his role, as did the entire cast, and you cannot help but enjoy their enjoyment and their expertise in their respective roles. Jack Carson is actually the only one who exceeds the over-the-top nuttiness by mugging terribly, but it all works anyway, and you will truly have a great time watching this wonderful example of what Hollywood was capable of producing in the "Golden Years." get the DVD, of course, the picture is superb and you want to see this in black and white, the wway it was meant to be seen.

One of our family's favorite classic movies. Despite the somewhat macabre subject manner, it is very lighthearted and has terriffic quotable moments throughout. They don't make comedies like they used to, and this one is definitely worth the watch! "Insanity doesn't run in my family; it fairly GALLOPS!"
4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Comedy from Hollywood's Golden Age 24 de abril de 2008
Por Bryan A. Pfleeger - Publicado en
Formato: DVD Compra verificada
Frank Capra's 1944 classic Arsenic and Old Lace is a great example of physical comedy from Hollywood's golden age. Adapted from the hit Broadway show by Joseph Kesselring the film stars Cary Grant as Mortimer Brewster who discovers that his kindly old aunts, Abby and Martha (Josephine Hull and Jean Adair), are killing lonely old men to put them out of their misery. Along the way we meet the rest of Brewster's looney family including a sociopathic brother Jonathan (Raymond Massey) who bears a striking resemblence to Boris Karloff and another brother who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt.

The film is full of slapstick comedy and sight gags, Grant, normally an atheletic actor does his best to keep the comedy alive with his plastic facial expressions and pratfalls.

This is a highly recommended film to just have fun with. The jokes never seem dated but the material has a tendency to lean toward overacting. In Capra's world this was not a bad thing.

The disc, while low in price, is a barebones affair. There are simply some production notes as a special feature. Watch this one if you have a desire for some light comedy.
