Peter Lorre Fest on GetTV, July 25

Lorre fans who have the new channel GetTV on their cable or satellite system can tune in tonight, Friday, July 25, for a Peter Lorre triple feature, beginning at 7 pm EST.

The Lorre fest gets underway with Crime and Punishment (1935) at 7 pm, followed by Island of Doomed Men (1940) at 9 pm, and ending with The Face Behind the Mask (1941) at 10:30 pm.

As “Icon of the Week”, Peter Lorre also gets a special page on the GetTV site.

And there’s a fun “Peter Lorre Trivia Quiz”, too – although among the 15 questions are a couple of questionable items, considering that Peter did not “intern” anywhere upon arriving in Hollywood in 1934 and neither did he study under Sigmund Freud.

GetTV is the latest home for classic Hollywood movies, shown 24 hours a day. Not sure if the channel is available in your area? A list of markets, organized by State, is available on the GetTV website.

Miss any of the films in the Lorre mini-fest? Crime and Punishment will also be shown on Tuesday, July 29, at 5:20 am EST.
