Humphrey Bogart and Peter Lorre, Ravello, Italy.

I have to roam the streets endlessly, always sensing that someone’s following me. It’s me! I’m shadowing myself! Silently…but I still hear it! Yes, sometimes I feel like I’m tracking myself down. I want to run – run away from myself! But I can’t – I can’t escape from myself! I must take the path that it’s driving me down and run and run down endless streets! I want off! And with me run the ghosts of the mothers and the children. They never go away. They’re always there! Always! Always! Except…when I’m doing it…when I’m…

Then I don’t remember a thing.

It’s there all the time, driving me out to wander the streets, following me, silently, but I can feel it there. It’s me, pursuing myself! I want to escape, to escape from myself! But it’s impossible. I can’t escape, I have to obey it. I have to run, run… endless streets. I want to escape, to get away! And I’m pursued by ghosts. Ghosts of mothers and of those children… they never leave me. They are always there… always, always, always!, except when I do it, when I… Then I can’t remember anything. And afterwards I see those posters and read what I’ve done, and read, and read… did I do that? But I can’t remember anything about it! But who will believe me? Who knows what it’s like to be me? How I’m forced to act… how I must, must… don’t want to, must! Don’t want to, but must! And then a voice screams! I can’t bear to hear it! I can’t go on! I can’tI can’t...

Fritz Lang’s M (1931) - Starring Peter Lorre as Hans Beckert

“I can’t help what I do! I can’t help it, I can’t…”

eloquento:

Peter Lorre was one of Lauren “Betty” Bacall’s biggest supporters. When Bogie told him that he loved Betty, but confessed that the twenty-five year difference in their ages bothered him, Peter dispelled his doubts, saying, “What’s the difference? It’s better to have five good years than none at all.”

Peter Lorre and Fritz Lang comparing notes on the set of M
Peter Lorre’s iconic child-killer Hans Beckert seems like one of those movie villains so fundamentally a part of the cinema that to see him between takes is something of a rare and hugely jarring shock to the system. and yet here he is, in full costume, chatting with Fritz Lang about his motivation, or the latest fashions in knee-high socks… but probably his motivation. i barely recognize him in this blanket lighting. great photo, need more BTS stuff from this, one of of my favorite films.
