Enjoy the Surprising Comic Timing of One of Hollywood's Most Suave Leading Men with These Three Classic Gems

Cary Grant is one of Hollywood's most legendary leading men, known for his cool demeanor and rugged good looks. But this screen icon also has a lighthearted side. Through a special licensing arrangement with
Cineburgh, Cary Grant's unique ability of not taking himself too seriously translates effortlessly in three of his most memorable gems that The Strand proudly presents over one weekend!

That's right, dahrling! Pick your favorite or attend all three for one low price! Just $11! See all 3 of these funnybone tickling films for less than a ticket to the local comedy club!

In Arsenic and Old Lace, a writer of books on the futility of marriage risks his reputation when he decides to get married. Things get even more complicated when he learns on his wedding day that his beloved maiden aunts are habitual murderers.

On December 12, 1941, with less than a week to go before filming was to be finished, director Frank Capra enlisted in the U. S. Army Signal Corps as a Major, prompted as were numerous Hollywood directors, cast and crew, by the attack on Pearl Harbor five days earlier. He received an extension to report for active duty in mid-January so he could finish editing the picture. He stayed to complete post production, and reported to Washington D.C. on February 11, 1942.

In The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer, a high school girl (Shirley Temple) falls for a playboy artist, with screwball results.

When filming began, Shirley Temple was 18 years old and had been married for 10 months. Cary Grant was 42 years old.

In The Philadelphia Story, when a rich woman's ex-husband and a tabloid-type reporter turn up just before her planned remarriage, she begins to learn the truth about herself.

The film was shot in eight weeks, and required no retakes. During the scene where James Stewart hiccups when drunk, you can see Cary Grant looking down and grinning. Since the hiccup wasn't scripted, Grant was on the verge of breaking out laughing and had to compose himself quickly. Stewart (apparently spontaneously) thought of hiccuping in the drunk scene, without telling Grant. When he began hiccuping, Grant turned to Stewart, saying, "Excuse me." The scene required only one take.
