See It Just to Watch Peter Lorre
22 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here we have a Mexican "The Trouble with Harry." It's the old "What happened to the body?" episode. Two less than savory characters are traveling with their insufferable aunt to Mexico when she dies. This wouldn't be a big deal except she has considerable money and they need a death certificate to make sure that they become beneficiaries. Unfortunately, her death takes place in Mexico and they encounter a series disreputable people, most prominent among them a crooked lawyer, played by Peter Lorre. Lorre is to me one of the best, if not the best, character actors of all time. He leads this young couple around the block time after time. He is charming and assuring and deadly untrustworthy. Of course, nothing runs smooth, and the master has the last word.
