Amazon Reviewer Alana left this note:
“I recently watched this with my 12 year old son and was surprised to see him belly laughing. I guess some of the old classics really do transcend generations. (I’m technically a millennial but I grew up without TV or colored movies so this pre-WWII movieland world feels like home to me.) I’ve watched this movie maybe half a dozen times in my life and look forward to watching it as many times again. It’s charming, hilarious, original, and just that tad bit spooky you want for a chilly late-autumn night viewing. I recommend pj’s and hot chocolate. …”
About the film:
Writer and notorious marriage detractor Mortimer Brewster (Cary Grant) falls for girl-next-door Elaine Harper (Priscilla Lane), and they tie the knot on Halloween. When the newlyweds return to their respective family homes to deliver the news, Brewster finds a corpse hidden in a window seat. With his eccentric aunts (Josephine Hull, Jean Adair), disturbed uncle (John Alexander), and homicidal brother (Raymond Massey), he starts to realize that his family is even crazier than he thought.
We are pleased to present an ongoing series of classic, family and popular films, shown in the beautifully restored John E. Hillert Auditorium.
