Acting honors go to Peter Lorre, the German actor who rave such a realistic performance as the murderer in "M" that his very appearance on the screen produces shudders. He plays the role of the chief plotter so well that the audience hates him thoroughly. He is able to produce an effect oi horror with less effort and greater cleverness than any other actor on the screen. K- C. paramount :.:.

Just what the motive fe that leads to the plotting of the assassination of a foreign agent in Kwia rennrt is not made very clear.
