The historic Cary was built in 1946, five years after the original showing of The Maltese Falcon in 1941. As the town’s first indoor movie theater, The Cary hosted live performances, as well as movies. Probably other Peter Lorre films played The Cary on their first run, among them – Three Strangers (1945), The Verdict (1946), and Black Angel (1946).

In The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre, Stephen D. Youngkin recounts the making of The Maltese Falcon, including an interview with the director and screenwriter John Huston. For Peter, working on the movie led to a lifelong friendship with Humphrey Bogart and eventually a contract with Warner Bros.

The Lost One is available in both hard-back and soft-bound, as well as the Kindle and Nook.
