After over three quarters of a century as America’s favorite gothic farce, Arsenic and Old Lace continues to sparkle with sweet little old ladies ladling out arsenic-spiced elderberry wine to lonely and elderly boarders, a touch of romance challenged by justifiable fears of inherited family insanity, plenty of word play and dramatic irony, and boodles of bodies buried in the basement.
