Sabrina (1954)

“Screen legends Humphrey Bogart and William Holden are the mega-rich Larrabee brothers of Long Island, New York.  Bogie’s all work; Holden’s all playboy.  They have little in common except that they’ve both taken notice of a beautiful, sophisticated young woman, possessing a delightful zest for living, suddenly in their midst – Audrey Hepburn as Sabrina Fairchild.  Could this really be the daughter of the Larrabee family’s chauffeur, whom both brothers largely ignored as she was growing up?  It is but now, after a stint in Paris, Sabrina has blossomed into a captivatingly glamorous woman of the world and the fuse is lit for some family fireworks as both brothers fall under the spell of Sabrina and her irresistible charms.”

Arsenic and Old Lace (1944)

“On Halloween, newly married drama critic Mortimer Brewster returns home to Brooklyn, where his adorably dotty aunts greet him with love, sweetness … and a grisly surprise: the corpses buried in their cellar. A bugle-playing brother who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt, a crazed criminal who’s a dead ringer for Boris Karloff, and a seriously slippery plastic surgeon are among the outré oddballs populating Arsenic and Old Lace, a diabolical delight that only gets funnier as the body count rises.”
