Peter Lorre: Film & TV List


Although he didn't howl during a full moon, couldn't turn himself into a nocturnal bat, nor did he sport a pair of metal bolts on the side of his neck, Peter Lorre, nonetheless, became one of the greatest and most recognizable horror icons of all time. His unique voice, physical appearance, and strange sense of humor landed him many roles of a predatory and villainous nature in countless movies -- especially film noir and other sub-genre thrillers. So convincing was Lorre's antagonistic portrayals that, out of fear, people would literally try to avoid him on the streets. However, movie audiences were eventually treated to other entertaining and enjoyable aspects of the talented actor's capabilities once he was finally allowed to display his impressive range during the Mr. Moto film series and later projects within the realm of comedy and drama. Possessing great comic timing, gifted with improvisational skills, and disciplined in method acting, Peter Lorre certainly could hold his own when working beside some of Hollywood's biggest stars. Like many of his fellow co-stars, Lorre received most of his training from performing in a substantial number of theatrical stage productions long before he began a career in motion pictures. Lorre especially enjoyed roles that challenged him and were far different from other characters he had already played, but his claim to fame were the vile and sinister roles that rattled and unnerved millions. Many have imitated and even mimicked him, but no one could ever duplicate the power he displayed behind each of his performances, no matter how small the role or how bad the script. A true professional of the highest degree.
