Arsenic and Old Lace

is a 1944 film directed by Frank Capra based on Joseph Kesselring's play of the same name. The script adaptation was by twins Julius J. Epstein and Philip G. Epstein. Capra actually filmed the movie in 1941, but it was not released until 1944, after the original stage version had finished its run on Broadway. The lead role of Mortimer Brewster was originally intended for Bob Hope, but he couldn't be released from his contract with Paramount.

Capra had also approached Jack Benny and Ronald Reagan before going with Cary Grant. Boris Karloff played Jonathan Brewster, who "looks like Karloff", on the Broadway stage, but he was unable to do the movie as well because he was still appearing in the play during filming, and Raymond Massey took his place.

In addition to Grant as Mortimer Brewster, the film also starred Josephine Hull and Jean Adair as the Brewster sisters, Abby and Martha, respectively. Hull and Adair as well as John Alexander (who played Teddy Roosevelt) were reprising their roles from the 1941 stage production. Hull and Adair both received an eight-week leave of absence from the stage production that was still running, but Karloff did not as he was an investor in the stage production and its main draw. The entire film was shot within those eight weeks. The film cost just over $1.2 million of a $2 million budget to produce.

Cary Grant donated his entire salary, $100,000, to the U.S. War Relief Fund.

When Mortimer is sitting in the graveyard, one of the tombstones has the name Archie Leach on it. Archie Leach is Cary Grant's real name.

This rare poster is printed on premium grade poster paper, which is far thicker than standard poster paper. It has a high level of detail with brilliant color.

5 out of 5 Inexpensive solid frame Been searching for a 27x40 frame and they ran between $30-80...I'm impressed with this frame. Good quality for a small price.

5 out of 5 Great frame for movie posters! Used it for a movie poster. Looks very sleek and nice hanging up, and makes the poster look awesome!

5 out of 5 great frame Is pretty, is lasting, is not twisting or bending, is light, is not too shiny, doesn't look cheap, perfect!

5 out of 5 Great Movie Poster Frame. Finding large frames at an economical price point can be difficult especially for frames that will fit a Movie Poster. Wal-Mart by far had the best price for a great frame.

5 out of 5 This frame is just what we wanted. Inexpensive, protects an old poster, and fills the space handsomely. Now we can share this treasure.

5 out of 5 Awesome frame...excellent price!!! Needed a frame for movie posters. Of all I found this is truly the best and the most reasonably priced!

5 out of 5 Twice as nice for half the price! If you've been killing yourself trying to find a quality 27x40 frame for under $100, this is it! I'd been all over the internet looking for an inexpensive frame for a movie poster and what I found were junky frames with moulding that separates and won't lie flat. This frame has a fixed moulding; you backload your pictures/poster right into it. I like this frame so much I'm getting 4 more, 2 to replace the garbage frames I bought elsewhere. You can stop looking now.

5 out of 5 Excellent product, meet all my expectations Bought it to display a large poster. Have a very positive comments about this display from many people.

5 out of 5 Great frames used for movie posters These frames were, by far, the best price around for movie posters I wanted to frame. The frames look really good and not like your average $20 poster frame!!

5 out of 5 Office Space remodeled... I bought four of these frames for my remodeled office space. I had four Star Wars poster that I want to hang in the new space and looked everywhere for poster frames that where going to meet my needs. Everything I found was at least $100.00 or above. I ran across these at Walmart. They look great on the wall. For the price you can not beat it; that is true. The look that I achieved on the wall is the same look or very close to the same look that the other high dollar frames offered. Pick these frames up at your local store, if possible, since frames of this size are sometimes damaged in shipping. Although the vast majority of reviewers reported safe deliveries.
