In the pages of The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre, the biography of Peter Lorre, author Stephen Youngkin recounts the making of The Maltese Falcon in the summer of 1941.

Not only was it the first movie Peter made with Humphrey Bogart, who would become his best friend – but it was also the movie on which Peter met Karen Verne, a young German actress who would soon be under contract to Warner Bros., work with Peter in another Warner film All Through the Night (1942) and in 1945, become the second Mrs. Lorre.
