Arsenic and Old Lace is a 1944 film directed by Frank Capra based on Joseph Kesselring’s play of the same name. Mortimer Brewster is a newspaperman and author known for his diatribes against marriage. We watch him being married at city hall in the opening scene. Now all that is required is a quick trip home to tell Mortimer’s two maiden aunts. While trying to break the news, he finds out his aunts’ hobby; killing lonely old men and burying them in the cellar. It gets worse. (2:40PM)

Only Angels Have Wings (1939) is a movie directed by Howard Hawks, and starring Cary Grant and Jean Arthur. While waiting for her boat, Bonnie Lee stops at a small airport in South America. The pilots there deliver mail over a dangerous and usually foggy mountain pass. Geoff Carter, the lead flyer, seems distant and cold as Bonnie tries to get closer to him. Things heat up as Judy MacPherson, Geoff’s old flame, shows up with her husband who is an infamous pilot. (5:00PM)
