Episode 324: The Lost One (1951)

Special Guests Stephen Youngkin
Guest Co-Hosts: Samm Deighan, Daniel Bird

In The Lost One (AKA Der Verlorene) (1951) we find Peter Lorre as Dr. Karl Rothe (AKA Dr. Karl Neumeister), working at a displaced persons camp after World War II. When a figure from his past, Hösch (AKA Nowak) (Karl John), appears at the camp the two men reminisce about their shared history during the war.

The film is a tense film noir by way of the German trümmerfilm (rubble film) and the only feature directed by Peter Lorre.

Daniel Bird and Samm Deighan join Mike to discuss The Lost One, Fritz Lang's M, and much more.

  1. Another well done episode - one nice surprise was to hear Ms. Deighan mention Robert Siodmak's THE DEVIL STRIKES AT NIGHT (Nachts, Wenn Der Teufel Kam), another obscurity that deserves to be more well known... and probably easier to find than THE LOST ONE.

    Surprised that none of the arthouse companies have taken on THE LOST ONE for R1, though from the sound of things, the rights situation is probably a huge reason why that hasn't happened. Still...
