2009 Inductee-- Peter Lorre

¸          Peter Lorre—(1904-1964):  Short, rotund, and bug-eyed, Lorre was the consummate villainous henchman in a film career that spanned thirty years.  He first gained notice as the pedophilic child killer in Fritz Lang’s superb film M, then starred in the 1935 Karl Freund-directed MAD LOVE.  He became a familiar face to movie-goers in the ‘40’s, appearing in films such as THE MALTESE FALCON, CASABLANCA, and ARSENIC AND OLD LACE.
