Fangirl: "Aww I thought you were magnificent in M" Lorre: *rolls his eyes* Seriously, did MGM publicists expect us to believe that Peter Lorre is in the phonebook??? Original trailer for "Mad Love" (1935), directed by Karl Freund.
Get ready to have a good laugh!
I can't believe I missed this the first time around. This bonus was so well-hidden in the "20'000 Leagues" DVD I didn't find it until now. Here Peter utters such lines as: "It's by far the most exciting picture I've ever worked in" with deadpan conviction. That and: "I can hardly wait to see myself, myself". Priceless.

There are only so many of the wonderful film clips of Mr. Lorres' lifetime of work that one can fit into a 10 minute slot. I can only hope that the viewer will enjoy my choices. * footnotes to the movie M * Peter Lorre's whistling was dubbed by director Fritz Lang. * The tune that Peter Lorre's character whistles is "In the Hall of the Mountain King," from the "Peer Gynt" suite, by Edvard Grieg. * Peter Lorre was Jewish and fled Germany in fear of Nazi persecution shortly after the movie's release. Fritz Lang, who was half Jewish, fled two years later. * Contrary to popular belief, Fritz Lang did not change the title from "The Murderers are Among Us" to "M" due to fear of persecution by the Nazis. He changed the title during filming, influenced by the scene where one of the criminals writes the letter on his hand. Lang thought "M" was a more interesting title. * Fritz Lang asserts that he cast real criminals for the court scene in the end. * Fritz Lang's cruelty to his actors was legendary here. Peter Lorre was thrown down the stairs into the cellar over a dozen times. * Based on an article Fritz Lang read about the serial killer Peter Kuerten from Duesseldorf. Details have been changed but some things resemble reality. * In Germany, the Nazis banned the movie in July 1934. * The extras playing the members of the criminal gang were real life delinquents: before the end of the turning 24 of them were put into jail. * Premiere voted this movie as one of "The 25 Most Dangerous Movies". * Chosen by the Association of German Cinémathèques as the most important German film of all times. * The use of voiceover narration was a groundbreaking new technique at the time. * The title "M" is short for Mörder, the German word meaning Murderer.
