Most widely held works by Raymond Massey
Frank Capra's Arsenic and old lace by Joseph Kesselring( Visual )

9 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in English and held by 2,029 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mirthful murder Cary-ed off in slapstick, slap-happy style! Cary Grant and a stellar cast romp through this classic farce based on Joseph Kesselring's 1941 Broadway hit and breezily directed by Frank Capra. Frazzled drama critic Mortimer Brewster (Grant) has two aunts (Josephine Hull and Jean Adair) who ply lonely geezers with poisoned libations, on sociopathic brother (Raymond Massey) who looks like Boris Karloff, one bonkers brother (John Alexander) who thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt, one impatient new bride (Priscilla Lane) -- and only one night to make it turn out all right. In this circus' center ring is Grant, twisting his face into a clown's gallery of flabbergasted reactions and transforming his natural athletic grace into a rubber-legged comic ballet. You'll die laughing. - Container
