Arsenic And Old Lace

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on January 30, 2004

    Hit Broadway play made into a Warner Brothers film starring Cary Grant, directed by Frank Capra. Kitty Kornered (Clampett, 1946) contains not one, but two references to this film. One early on when the lush cat is seen tippling from a bottle labeled “Arsenic and Old Grapes”, and again at the very end, with the cats yelling “Charge!” in Teddy Roosevelt getup.
