Bogart Fest in Buffalo Includes Two Lorre Films

The Old Chestnut Film Society, which meets at the Philip Sheridan School in Buffalo, New York, will include two Peter Lorre movies in their Humphrey Bogart film fest, “Bogie! Tough and Tender”.

Each film will be shown in the Community Room of the Philip Sheridan School. Although refreshments will not be provided, attendees are welcome to bring their own. Dr. Grant Golden – founder, director, and projectionist at the Old Chestnut Film Society – will host each film, including short subjects and door prizes.

The Philip Sheridan School is located at 3200 Elmwood Avenue, in Buffalo, New York. Parking is available at the school.

Tickets are $6 for both residents and non-residents. A ticket for the entire series is also available for $32.

In the pages of The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre (2005), author Stephen D. Youngkin discussed the off-screen friendship of Peter and Bogie, as well as the making of The Maltese Falcon and All Through the Night – which the two actors filmed consecutively.

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