Sorry I am a little late with your answer. I was trying to find another host for just my trivia questions. So far that hasn’t worked out.
Ok, back on track! Yesterday’s question was:
Who was the first actor to portray a James Bond villain?
And here is your answer: it was the incomparable Peter Lorre!
Not only was he known for his unforgetable characters but also for his sense of humor.
Here is one of my favorite stories! According to Vincent Price, when he and Peter Lorre went to view Bela Lugosi‘s body during Bela’s funeral, Lorre, upon seeing Lugosi dressed in his famous Dracula cape, quipped, “Do you think we should drive a stake through his heart just in case?”
Got to love a guy with a sense of humor! Peter would have been 108 on June 26th.
