Heartwarming / Peter Lorre

  • When Peter's best friend Humphrey Bogart was hesitant to propose to Lauren Bacall, for fear that he'd leave her a widow too soon (due to the age difference), Peter changed his mind by saying, "Five good years are better than none."
  • In the years after World War II, Lorre frequented veterans' hospitals to comfort wounded and disabled servicemen. On most occasions he refused to perform for them, instead engaging the vets in one-on-one conversations and listening to their stories.
