In the pages of The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre, Stephen D. Youngkin discusses the making of The Maltese Falcon through interviews with the film’s director John Huston. Working on the movie in the summer of 1941 introduced Peter Lorre to the Warner Bros. studio, Sydney Greenstreet (with whom Peter would work in eight more movies), and Humphrey Bogart, who became one of Peter’s two closest friends.

The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre is available in eBook format, as well as hard-bound and soft-bound editions.
