Peter Lorre achieved international fame for his performance in the myth-making role in M. This character has held a peculiar fascination for his generations of cinéphiles. However, at the time, whilst such success meant recognition, it also weighed on the Hungarian actor as a constrictive burden.
Using photographs and film extracs, Das doppelte Gesicht reconstrucs the ups and downs of Lorre's career, taking into consideration the economic imperatives and workings of the film industry at the time. (Arnold Hohmann, 1984)
