Set in the early 1940s, Arsenic tells the story of newspaper drama critic Mortimer Brewster, a normal, run of the mill guy who is anxious to marry his fiancée, the girl next door and a ministers daughter, Elaine.
But standing solidly between Mortimer and matrimonial bliss is the wackiest, weirdest family tree that ever grew! His two sweet aunts, Abby and Martha have developed murder as their favorite hobby. Out of a twisted sense of sympathy, they regularly poison lonely old men with a mixture of arsenic and elderberry wine and then bury them in the cellar.
Cousin Teddy sports pince-nez and a handlebar moustache and regularly charges up San Juan Hill! And horrid brother Jonathan has just arrived from an asylum with a new face (ala Boris Karloff) and a sinister sidekick named Dr. Einstein.
It's Home Sweet Homicide as Mortimer tries to thwart the police (a kindly but goofy bunch), conceal a corpse, curtail anymore killing, and convince Elaine that a wedding with a man who is drowning in such a murky gene pool would lead to nothing but woe. Arsenic and Old Lace is a classic comic melodrama.
