A masterful balance between noir and comedy, Arsenic and Old Lace has preserved the subversive energy that made Frank Capra’s film with Cary Grant and Boris Karloff so famous. Gleijeses directs two of Italy’s leading actresses, Anna Maria Guarnieri and Giulia Lazzarini, as the endearing spinsters who poison their tenants with elderberry wine laced with arsenic.
