In the pages of The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre, Stephen D. Youngkin discusses the on-screen and off-screen friendship of Peter Lorre and Humphrey Bogart through interviews with their friends and family members. The two actors met on The Maltese Falcon in the fall of 1941 and went on to work together in three more movies at Warner Bros. until Peter left the studio in 1945. Beat the Devil was their final movie together, filmed on location in Italy in 1954.

The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre may be purchased from Amazon U.S., Amazon Canada, and Amazon U.K, as well as other booksellers.
