Theodore Roosevelt in Arsenic and Old Lace

This Cary Grant-starring black comedy has a lot of quirky characters to fall for, from sweet old ladies with a taste for murder to evil brothers whose plastic surgery makes them look like Frankenstein’s monster. But nothing rings quite as irresistible as Teddy Brewster (John Alexander), the brother who believes he’s Teddy Roosevelt. Living quite firmly in his delusion, Teddy is able to apply much of Roosevelt’s life to his world with his elderly aunts. Charging up the stairs is like charging up San Juan Hill, and when his aunts murder people, it’s time for Teddy to dig locks for the Panama Canal and bury victims of yellow fever.
