Library Film Program Includes Lorre

The Saranac Lake Free Library continues their “Great Films” program with a showing of Casablanca (1942) on Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2016.

The movie begins at 2 pm in the Thomas B. Cantwell Community Room.

Admission is free for everyone.

The Saranac Lake Free Library is located at 109 Main Street, in Saranac Lake, New York. For more information, please call the library at 518-891-4190.

In the pages of The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre (2005), Stephen D. Youngkin recounts the making of Casablanca, a film to which Peter attached little importance and later claimed he made more money playing the roulette wheel on the “Gambling Room” ser than he did acting before the cameras.

However, Casablanca did give Peter the opportunity to work for a third time with his off-screen buddy Humphrey Bogart, as well as earn him a contract with the Warner Bros. studio he is now so closely associated with.

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