Join author and horror expert Mark Iveson to find out more about the screen legend ahead of a film screening.

The toast of the German stage and a mesmerising actor with unique qualities, Peter Lorre became a Hollywood star following his disturbing performance as the child killer in M (1932). But fame carries a double edged sword as Hollywood never knew what to do with him. Typecast in villainous roles, Lorre’s morphine addiction and financial problems undermined his interesting career. We look at the life and times of this remarkable man who clearly deserved better recognition.
