He aged well.

Before and after what? Although these images look to be roughly the same time frame, if anything he looks younger and more vibrant in the 'after' picture.

Which ones before? Which one's after? (Heee-hee, I don't think anybody wants to know which is which, ehhh-hehe-hu)

Actually he didn't age all that well, he put on a lot of weight and the effects of alcohol, nicotine and morphine addiction took their toll. I can't imagine he ever looked better than the second photograph here.

After looks better, for once.

Before and after Fritz Lang?

Before looks like it's from the Hitchcock era, actually.

Hehe, well said swac.

The 'Before' photo was taken around the time of Hitchcock's 'The Man Who Knew Too Much'; the 'After', some time in the late 30s . . . after he got to Hollywood.

Looks like he's playing an A Minor chord....

Once he hit Hollywood Mr. Lazslo Lowenstein lost more than 30lbs. He looked at his best in The Maltese Falcon,
