Der Verlorene in London

On Tuesday, April 7, Der Verlorene – the only movie Peter Lorre directed, co-wrote (as an original screenplay, not a novel), and co-produced – will be shown in London at the Goethe-Institut, as part of the film series After the War, Before the Wall: West German Cinema 1945-60.

The Goethe-Institut is located at 50 Princes Gate, Exhibition Road, London, SW7 2PH.

Admission is £3.

The show will begin at 7 p.m.

For booking information, call +44 20 75964000.

The troubled making of Der Verlorene is documented in Chapter 8, "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes", of The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre by Stephen Youngkin through interviews he took with many who worked on the film before and behind the cameras.

Peter would no doubt be pleased by the attention Der Verlorene (which he translated as The Lost One) has received since the 1980s.
