"Do you think we should drive a stake through his heart just in case?"

That's what Peter Lorre asked Vincent Price at Bela Logosi's funeral. True story. Peter Lorre, one of my favorite, and a brilliant, actor was born today, June 26, in 1904.
Another true thing is that I have been battling heavy rain all morning from flooding my studio the same way it did about 3 weeks ago. I seem to be losing the battle at this point.

Hi, Michael!

Thanks for the great photo of Peter Lorre and mentioning his birthday today.

Have you read the Lorre biography, "The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre" by Stephen D. Youngkin? A must for every Lorre fan. You can find out more about the book -- and more about Peter himself -- on the official website;
