    the movie that made him famous. it's german so you'll have to see it in subtitles. but it's great. Lorre plays a serial killer who's murdering children in Germany. the crooks in the city are being pressured by the police to give him up. so the crooks band together, track him down, and put him on trial. excellent flick.

    20,000 Leagues Under the Sea--disney flick, but not a bad adaptation. James Mason and Kirk Douglas also star in it. Lorre is the professor's assistant. his role is much straighter than his usual stuff.
