In The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre (2005), Stephen Youngkin discusses the making of The Man Who Knew Too Much. While the Hitchcock-directed movie was not the first time Peter spoke English on-camera, it was his first major English-speaking role – and brought him a Hollywood contract with Columbia Studios and a First Cabin ticket for himself and his wife Celia Lovsky aboard Cunard’s Majestic.

The Lost One: The Life of Peter Lorre is now available on the Kindle and Nook, as well as soft-bound and hard-bound.
