UW Cinematheque - Peter Lorre: The Mad and the Bad

The Lost One (Der Verlorene) | West Germany | 1951 | 35mm | 98 min. | German with English subtitles Director: Peter Lorre

Event Details

Wednesday, July 11, 2018
7 p.m.
4070 Vilas Hall
Cast: Peter Lorre, Karl John, Helmuth Rudolph
In the only feature film he ever directed, Lorre plays a doctor and research scientist working in a post-war refugee camp. The sudden appearance of a former colleague (John) causes Lorre to reflect on his sinister past during the war years. A sometimes shocking stunner, Der Verlorene was a flop with European audiences on its original release and was unseen in the U.S. until 1984.
