Parking is available on the streets in front of the Tower, as well as in the Smith’s parking lot at 800 East 900 South. Parking is also available along Windsor Street, west of the Tower.

Stephen Youngkin discusses the making of The Man Who Knew Too Much, and Peter Lorre’s work with the famed director Alfred Hitchcock, in the pages of The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre (2005).

Peter’s success in his first English-speaking role led to a Hollywood contract with Columbia Studios and first-class tickets to America aboard the Majestic for himself and his wife Celia Lovsky. It was also the start of his long career in mystery and suspense movies, radio, and television.

The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre is now available in both hardback and soft-bound, as well as the Nook and Kindle.
