Arsenic And Old Lace (1944) ***1/2

Finally got around to watching this.
One of the few classic Cary Grant films that I hadn't seen yet.
Fun, loopy performance from Grant and great direction from Capra.
I always love seeing Peter Lorre as well.
Amazingly, the only other film I've seen that he directed is It's A Wonderful Life.
It's interesting how films based on plays, like this one, often feel life plays (staging, choice of shots, etc).
