Corded Lace - James HareArsenic and Old Lace is generally associated with the film starring Cary Grant, about two old ladies who murder their gentlemen-visitors. Before that, though, it was a long-running play on Broadway, the most successful of the plays of Joseph Kesselring. The play got its title from a previous, and now largely forgotten, sentimental novel of , Lavender and Old Lace, by Myrtle Reed. Reed's titles tended towards the fey eg Old Rose and Silver; Threads of Grey and Gold and were much parodied as a result. Now that her fragrant opus has dropped out of folk memory it is Arsenic and Old Lace that we think of as the original. Love puzzles?
