In the pages of The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre, Stephen Youngkin describes the making of Casablanca, Peter’s third movie with Humphrey Bogart and his fourth at the Warner Bros. studio. Not yet under contract with the studio, Peter claimed he made more money playing roulette on the “gambling room” set between takes than he did working before the cameras. But it was his performance in Casablanca that finally sold the Warner brothers on the idea of signing him to a contract.

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