Wisconsin Library Film Series Includes Lorre

The movie begins at 1:30 pm with a brief commentary by Dr. Jack Rhodes, who lectures in the Waupaca area on the rhetoric of film genres. Popcorn, soda, and theater treats will be served during the film.

Admission is free for everyone, and reservations are not necessary.

The Waupaca Area Public Library is located at 107 South Main Street, in Waupaca, Wisconsin.

Parking is available in the lot behind the library, as well as nearby streets.

For more information, please call the library at 715-258-4114.

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” set 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.

Purchase The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre from Amazon.
