what an actor
lorre terrified me when i was a kid. now i can't get enough of him. he played 'raskolnikov' in an early version of 'crime and punishment.' unfortunately, it is not easy to find. he was wonderful opposite marian marsh, the prettiest woman to ever make movies.
one of lorre's great lines: “You know, Rick, I have many a friend in Casablanca, but somehow, just because you despise me, you are the only one I trust.”
