“Arsenic and Old Lace” starring Cary Grant at BYU film series Oct. 25

The popular, classic comedy “Arsenic and Old Lace” starring Cary Grant will have a one-time showing Friday, Oct. 25, at 7 p.m. in the Harold B. Lee Library auditorium on level one as part of the Brigham Young University Motion Picture Archive Film Series.

Admission is free, but seating is limited. Doors open at 6 p.m. Children ages 8 and older are welcome. No food or drink is permitted in the auditorium.

This film version, released in 1944, of the long-running Broadway play by Joseph Kresserling also stars Priscilla Lane, Jean Adair, Josephine Hutchinson, Peter Lorre and Raymond Massey. Directed by Frank Capra, “Arsenic and Old Lace” was filmed in 1941 but held back from release for three years because of a contractual agreement that it would not be shown until the Broadway run had ended.

James D’Arc, curator of the BYU Motion Picture Archive, will introduce “Arsenic and Old Lace” and provide behind-the-scenes information prior to the film’s showing.

The BYU Motion Picture Archive Film Series is sponsored by the L. Tom Perry Special Collections, friends of the Harold B. Lee Library and Dennis and Linda Gibson.

For more information about the BYU Motion Picture Archive Film Series and its schedule, visit sc.lib.byu.edu or contact James D’Arc, (801) 422-6371, james_darc@byu.edu.
