Frank Capra, US, 1944, 118 min., b/w

Mortimer Brewster returns to his childhood home to share news of his recent engagement with his eccentric aunts, Abby and Martha, who raised him. Upon learning their dark secret, Mortimer desperately tries to keep his fiancé in the dark while the situation becomes more and more harrowing. Frank Capra’s adaptation of the hit 1941 Broadway play is a hilariously macabre farce starring Cary Grant as the charmingly besieged Mortimer.
