Arsenic and Old Lace (1962 television)

Classic farce (with horror elements) by Joseph Kesselring

With Halloween quickly approaching, I wanted to share with everyone the really fun version of the Arsenic and Old Lace play I did at the Attic Theatre. The bad news was my copy is scratched and I still can't get a copy of that, and everyone knows the classic film version of 1944 with Cary Grant, directed by Frank Capra... but the good news is this public domain television version produced by Hallmark Hall of Fame in 1962 that I was fortunate enough to find with Tony Randall as Mortimer, and with the psycho killer role of Jonathan Brewster (which is becoming my signature role as an actor, having played it twice) played by the great horror movie star Boris Karloff, who actually originated the role on Broadway a quarter century earlier
