D is for Dialogue

“Insanity runs in my family. It practically gallops.”  (Arsenic and Old Lace)

One of my favorite pieces of dialogue is from the movie  “Arsenic and Old Lace” with Cary Grant, (who plays Mortimer Brewster).

I found a clip that shows Cary Grant at his best when he discovers a body in the window seat.

In high-school our drama department put on the play Arsenic and Old Lace.  I played the elder sister with all the emotion my sixteen year old self could garner.  The show was a great success and we got a terrific review in the newspaper along with our photo (in make-up and costume of course.) That is a sixty year old memory.  Now I look like that photo.
