Hysterical classic comedy! The sweet, old Brewster sisters are beloved in their genteel Brooklyn neighborhood for their many charitable acts. One charity which the ladies don’t advertise is their ongoing effort to permit lonely people to die with smiles on their faces – by serving their “guests” elderberry wine spiked with arsenic. When the sisters’ drama-critic nephew Mortimer stumbles onto their secret, he is understandably put out – especially since he has just proposed to the lovely Elaine Harper. Given the homicidal tendencies of his aunts, the sinister activities of his escaped-convict brother Jonathan and the disruptive behavior of younger brother Teddy – who is convinced that he’s really Theodore Roosevelt, and runs around the house yelling “CHAAAARGGGE” – Mortimer isn’t keen on starting a family with anyone! “Insanity runs in my family,” he explains. “In fact, it practically gallops.”
