Containing Multitudes Since 2004
The Intelligentsia Diaspora in a nutshell. :-(
Both in exile a year later.
Actually, I think this photo was taken during the course of that voyage
Would be yet more poignant if so, but I don't think that's the case. I came across the picture here, on a website belonging to the author of a Peter Lorre biography:http://www.peterlorrebook.com/plphotos2.htmlAlso check out drawing of Lorre and Veidt as demonic ping-pong doubles team.Love this blog, BTW.
Thanks for the nice mention of the Peter Lorre biography website ("The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre" by Stephen D. Youngkin).To clear up some confusion about the photo, here is the caption that accompanied it:"A close shot of Conrad Veidt and Peter Lorre en route to Oie Island to film 'F.P.1. antwortet nicht'. Although the actors appeared in different versions of the film, they developed a close friendship during the three-month location shoot."So the two actors were on their way to work on their latest film, "F.P.1 antwortet nicht" (F.P.1 Doesn't Answer), not escaping from Nazi Germany.Thanks again!Cheryl
