A Nip of Elderberry Wine, Mr. Witherspoon?


"For a gallon of elderberry wine I take one teaspoon full of arsenic then add a half a teaspoon full of strychnine, and then just a pinch of cyanide". Yum-yum....yes, those dear little ol' ladies had a winning recipe for creating a tasty drink - one any gentlemen would be more than happy to make his last. 

Edward Everett Horton, Jean Adair, and Josephine Hull in Frank Capra's Arsenic and Old Lace ( 1944 )

  2. Cary Grant's facial expressions in this film are priceless. He says more with his expressions than some people can say in a hundred words.

    Really fun film.

    1. Some people find his expressions annoying in this movie, but like you I just think they are wonderful. I can't imagine anyone else but Cary playing this part, especially in that scene when Mortimer first discovers what his aunts are truly up to. Priceless!
