Arsenic and Old Lace ★★½

The good news is that our attitudes on mental illness have evolved in the past 70 years.

As for the film itself, it’s not as good as I remember. Grant’s constant mugging isn’t the best use of his comic talents, and Capra has trouble making the most of the dark comedy, especially under a laborious runtime that probably works better when you have the energy of a live production rather than a film.
