I'm a bit late getting something up for Trick or Treat.
This isn't going to be very inspired but here it is:
My favourites are not scary movies but they do seem to fit the season. I love it when they air at this time of year. I haven't seen either of them in quite some time.
First up is Frank Capra's 1944 comedy, Arsenic and Old Lace. Starring Cary Grant, Priscilla Lane, Raymond Massey, Peter Lorre, John Alexander, Josephine Hull and Jean Adair, it's set right about October 31st.
Two sweet little old ladies poison their lodgers with arsenic laced elderberry wine and bury the deceased in their basement.
It's great fun and a barrel of laughs!
Second, is Alfred Hitchcock's 1955 comedy, The Trouble With Harry. While the month isn't specified, it is set at a time when the leaves are all in a blaze of color. It stars John Forsythe, Mildred Natwick, Edmund Gwynn, a very young Jerry Mathers (prior to his Leave It To Beaver TV series) and introduces Miss Shirley MacLaine in her first movie role.
It's a hilarious story about a body that is found on a nearby hillside and the confusion that surrounds who killed the victim (and how)and what to do with the body.
What movies are your favourites to watch at Halloween?
