Peter Lorre Peter Lorre Peter Lorre

Going out on a limb here, and will probably lose my three viewers with one daft clip, but this is my new favourite song, about one of the finest dudes from way back...

...and no, I've no idea what the lobster is doing here either.


  1. In the early 1920's Vienna, Lorre - cursed with short stature, very large hands and prominent eyes (coupled with his parents small fishmongers shop) - was known to the local schoolchildren as The Lobster. A nickname he loathed, and tried to shake off throughout his whole career.
    Hope this clears things up for you.


  2. nice one Cyril! like the way you're signing off with your website address! its like the combined handshake/business card trick!
    very slick!
    PS youve given up on giving me the odd click here too havent you?!

  3. Didn't want to mess it up for you like it did with mine.
    BTW, I made all that Peter Lorre stuff up. Sorry.
