While subtitled versions of The Lost One/Der Verlorene (1951) – the only film Peter Lorre ever directed – are in circulation, the documentaries featured in the Arthaus Premium Edition German-language DVD extras will, in all likelihood, not be available soon. With that in mind, a Swiss film scholar who prefers to identify himself only as “Nordenwald” has posted a subtitled version of the Robert Fischer documentary: "Displaced Person: Peter Lorre and his film, 'Der Verlorene'" on YouTube. To view the first of seven clips and find out everything you always wanted to know about this relentlessly disturbing film, click here.

This subtitling project was strictly a labor of love, Nordenwald tells Cinema Retro. “I think this documentary should be available to the non-German speaking public somehow, as it sheds light on a side of Peter Lorre that audiences from the English-speaking world are not used to seeing, since he is, to this day, being marketed as a horror character actor, ever the ‘diminutive villain’ or ‘Master of Menace,’ as one American documentary has it.... all regrettably reductionist views. I've posted the entire English-subtitled documentary on YouTube because, so long as the documentary is not available on the market with subtitles, I do no wrong to anyone, copyright-wise.”
