A Is For...

My theme for the A To Z Challenge 2014 is things I’ve learnt from movies. Some are serious, some are silly. And some I was clutching at straws.
I’ve tried to find clips of said movies where possible. So if I couldn’t find a clip and you haven’t seen the movie… well you’ll have to take my word for it :)

A is for Arsenic And Old Lace.

This is actually just a blatant excuse to mention Cary Grant :)

So the basic plot of Arsenic And Old Lace is:

"A drama critic learns on his wedding day that his beloved maiden aunts are homicidal maniacs, and that insanity runs in his family."

What have I learnt from Arsenic And Old Lace? Well I was going to come up with something witty about how you shouldn't trust sweet old ladies or that your family will drive you mad (however I think that is demonstrated in the video). But as this was the first movie I saw starring Cary Grant I decided that what I learnt from this movie was how awesome Cary Grant is. :) (This movie is rated PG in the UK).

Take it away Cary...

Take all the blatant excuses you can to mention Cary Grant! Love his movies, and this is a good one.

Yup, I was a big Cary Grant fan too.

Good beginning.
