The making of Casablanca (1942) is discussed in the pages of The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre (2005), by Stephen D. Youngkin. Although Peter Lorre attached little importance to his role as Ugarte, whose theft of a pair of valuable letters of transit is the catalyst for the movie’s action, his performance led to a contract with Warner Bros. and the busiest and most successful period of his career.

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