Hi!

I just joined, so here are my replies to the questions:

Name: starrigan
Age: 40. FORTY!!! (As of last month. I'm still traumatised.)
Location: Newfoundland, Canada
How did you first become interested in and/or obsessed with Peter Lorre? Mmm, probably The Maltese Falcon and that thing Joel Cairo does with the umbrella... (Can I say that? Is this community for adults? ::grin::)
What is your current favorite Peter movie? I loved him in both Falcon and Arsenic and Old Lace but I'd happily watch him read the phone book. ^_^
What do you like most about Peter? His talent and his beauty. It's an equal split.
If you could meet Peter, what would you say to him? "You are amazingly talented. Ignore the naysayers, and keep doing what you do. And thank you - a thousand times, thank you."
Which Peter characters would you most and least like to be stuck with in an elevator? It's hard to say, really...
Other interests: I'm a novelist. Don't know if that counts as an interest...I'm a cinephile with a special love of film noir.

Welcome, Starrigan! So glad you enjoyed "The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre".

I loved it. LOVED it. It completely captivated me. Thanks for recommending it! ^_^
Welcome, starrigan! Great to meet you! Haha! I like your Joel Cairo answer. I don't think there's anything wrong with innuendo! :D

I don't think I even saw the original post! :D But I'll follow your lead since I haven't had a chance to answer them yet either.

Age: 35 (Yay! I can run for president!)
Location: Concord, NH
How did you first become interested in Peter?:
I'd heard of Peter Lorre all my life, but it was listening to a song from my childhood, "Year of the Cat", that I decided I wanted to know who this man was who "went strolling through the crowd contemplating a crime." Saw "Mad Love" and was totally smitten. :D
Current favorite Peter movie?:
"Mad Love" is my favorite over-all Peter movie. It's got a sympathetic Lorre wanting love, a fun story, and poetry. It also has Lorre's only on-screen kiss. What more could you want??
What do you like most about Peter?:
Wow, it's very hard to say. He's beautiful and intelligent, but he's also very vulnerable. There's so much to adore and admire.
If you could meet Peter, what would you say to him?:
I'd thank him for all the fun he's given to me and to others who love his movies. I'd buy him lunch.
Which Peter characters would you most and least like to be stuck with in an elevator?:

Most - Louie the Dope (I'll Give a Million), Mr. Moto, Dr. Gogol (Mad Love), Polo (I Was an Adventuress), Abbott (Man Who Knew Too Much). I really should stop here before it gets out of control!

Least - Gino (The Chase), The General (Secret Agent), SGT Berger (Cross of Lorraine), Hans Beckert (M), The Stranger (Stranger on the Third Floor) All others are negotiable. Heck, all of these are negotiable. :)

Other interests: I love science fiction (DS9, Babylon 5, Dr. Who, Red Dwarf, etc.) as well as British comedy. I also love Sherlock Holmes, 18th and 19th century nautical fiction, horror movies, video games that appeal to your brain (Silent Hill, Tomb Raider, etc.), crossword puzzles, The Three Stooges, classic movies of many types, and satire. Yeah, I'm sure there are one or two things that I've missed. :D
I like your Joel Cairo answer. I don't think there's anything wrong with innuendo! :D

Me either! I melt when he rubs it across his lips...

the umbrella, people. minds out of the gutter! ^_^
Welcome! Don't worry, I'm sure we've all had thoughts about Joel Cairo's umbrella...;)
Oh good, it's not just me. ^_^
