In the Hall of the Mountain King January 6, 2012

Posted by stuffilikenet in Awesome, Brilliant words, Video.

Anyone who is my advanced age will remember Peter Lorre as a B movie actor in horror films or noir detective flicks and such alongside Humphrey Bogart.  But Peter Lorre was a famous successful actor in Europe when he got tricked into coming to America by Adolph Hitler (by way of Paris, London and other less sinister places).  Before he came here, his acting chops were admirably demonstrated in the film that made him famous:

“M”, directed by Fritz Lang (of Metropolis fame), is the story of a hunt for a child-molesting murderer, played by Peter Lorre.  A completely engrossing film, its entirety is viewable on YouTube.

You’ll be grateful to me for these pearls of wisdom someday, youngster.
