In the pages of The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre, Stephen D. Youngkin describes the making of Beat the Devil, the final movie Peter made with old friend Humphrey Bogart, who considered Peter a “good luck charm” and insisted he be added to the cast. For Peter, the film was a happy opportunity to work with both Bogie and director John Huston, with whom he had worked on his first Warner Bros. movie, The Maltese Falcon, more than 10 years earlier.

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