This is the Peter Lorre Film to See!
Watch "Double Confession"! I came upon this movie by accident, and was glad I did. At the end, I'm still a bit confused by the plot, but no matter...the thing that really fascinated me was Peter Lorre's performance as Paynter, which is a rather important role. Paynter's character is very specific and very believable: an oddball, somewhat self-pitying, hanger-on. He's quite malevolent, and has his reasons. But watch his scenes closely. He's natural, controlled, and fascinating. A great Lorre discovery!share
