In The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre, Stephen D. Youngkin recounts the making of M through interviews with director Fritz Lang and Peter Lorre’s younger brother Andrew, who visited the set. M was the first sound film for both Lang and Lorre – but it was not the first time Peter had stepped before the cameras, though he always said so in interviews with newspaper and magazine reporters. The long-thought-lost silent movie Die verschwundene Frau (The Missing Wife, 1929) is actually Peter’s first movie credit.

A secret he kept to the end of his life.

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