Peter Lorre Night on TCM

13 Aug

It’s Peter Lorre Night tonight on Turner Classic Movies.

Remember the old Bugs Bunny cartoon with Peter Lorre and Edward G. Robinson? Watch it in the clip provided above.  It’s truly a classic — and a fun childhood memory.

Lorre starred as the ingenius sleuth Mr. Moto

Paul Johnson (one of the all-time great surf guitarists) wrote a song called Mr. Moto, which became a big regional hit in SoCal back in the early 1960s. I have included a video of Paul and some old friends performing the tune at a 2007 reunion at the Huntington Beach Surfing Museum. Get totally stoked!
