Peter Lorre’s iconic child-killer Hans Beckert seems like one of those movie villains so fundamentally a part of the cinema that to see him between takes is something of a rare and hugely jarring shock to the system. and yet here he is, in full costume, chatting with Fritz Lang about his motivation, or the latest fashions in knee-high socks… but probably his motivation. i barely recognize him in this blanket lighting. great photo, need more BTS stuff from this, one of of my favorite films.
