Biographical Notes in German: Eigentlich Laszlo Löwenstein, in Rosenburg, in der damaligen k.u.k. Provinz, geboren, aufgewachsen in Braila und Wien, Künstlername Peter Lorre. Erste Engagements in Breslau, Zürich und Wien, durch Bertolt Brecht an das Theater am Schiffbauerdamm nach Berlin.
Sein Durchbruch im Kino erfolgte mit Fritz Lang's "M", wo er den gesuchten Mörder spielte. Im Exil in USA u.a. die beliebte Serienfigur "Mr. Moto" in mehreren Filmen und zahlreiche zweite Rollen als zwielichter Charakter in einigen der besten Filmen der amerikanischen Série Noire. Sein Regieversuch in "Der Verlorene" von 1951 brachte ihm zwar viele positive Kritiken, blieb aber finanziell ein Desaster.
