The Show

We all have family issues, but Mortimer Brewster’s take the cake! His charming aunts have crafted a murderous blend of elderberry wine, which they serve to their lonely old male roomers; his brother thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt; and his other brother — perhaps it’s best not to say anything at all! Then there’s a playwriting policeman, Mortimer’s hopeful fiancée and the uneasy Dr. Einstein — all adding up to a classic, surefire comedy hit!
