Product Description

Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre make a marvelous team in this exhilarating and atmospheric film noir that Daily Variety hailed as "one of the most brilliant crime dramas yet filmed." When the body of Dimitrios Makropoulos (Zachary Scott) washes ashore in Istanbul, there is cause for celebration all across Europe. The devious sociopath has left as his legacy an array of crimes including blackmail, thievery, murder and high treason. Interested in chronicling the dead mans unscrupulous exploits, mystery writer Cornelius Leyden (Lorre) takes up his trail, aided by a mysterious man named Peters (Greenstreet). But as Leyden zeroes in on the truth about Dimitrios, he finds that his new associate has an ulterior motive in helping him ' with Leyden as the unwitting accomplice! As suspenseful and riveting as the Eric Ambler novel on which it is based, The Mask of Dimitrios is "an exceptional picture" (Los Angeles Times) that delivers nonstop, pulse-quickening excitement!

The body of Dimitrios Makropoulos washes up on the shore of Istanbul, and his history of crimes is brought to the attention of mystery writer Peter Lorre. Dimitrios was a man without a conscience, always looking to make money at the expense of anyone. Lorre becomes fascinated by his story, and goes on a quest to find out more about the much despised man. The quest takes him across Europe, to such locales as Sofia, Geneva, and Paris. Along the way he gets involved with Sydney Greenstreet, a menacing man who clearly knows more than he is saying, with motives of his own. The story is partly told through a series of flashbacks, as victims of Dimitrios' schemes and backstabbing relate their experiences. This is another example of film noir, with the action taking place at night, in dark spaces. Everyone has questionable motives and characters, each looking out for themselves. Lorre is good in an offbeat role, and it's entertaining to watch him with the always fun Greenstreet - what an odd couple. Zachary Scott is appropriately menacing and nasty as Dimitrios, and Steven Geray is particularly good as one of Dimitrios' unfortunate victims. I did get occasionally confused during the flashbacks, but not enough to detract from the overall film. It quickly establishes a dark, sinister mood, and doesn't let up. This is a forgotten thriller that deserves to be seen.

Plus Zachary (MILDRED PIERCE) Scott, at his evil, fly-by-night best here.

Get this film. If any kind of 40s spy/noir/adventure/Greenstret/Lorre film buff, you'll watch this at least a dozen times inside of six months, guaranteed, at the least. It's that good. It's a little devilish, that's all: that's why you haven't heard of it. Great foreign character actors, and Lorre plays an out-of-character character himself: a somewhat mellow, yet curious novelist (mystery novelist, of course.)
You won't be disappointed, fellow fan of the European-atmosphered, espionage-stylized, cloak 'n dagger'd 'n dark, traveling-late-by-night-on-the-train, scoundrels-everywhere-in- every-guise flick.
...go for it. And don't miss BACKGROUND TO DANGER, and ACROSS THE PACIFIC.

This 1940's film noir mystery features the successful collaboration of the heavy lidded Peter Lorre and the corpulent Sydney Greenstreet.
A macerated body washes up on the shores of the Bosphorus in Istanbul. The bloated body bears the identification of Dimitrios Makropoulos, a European criminal legend. The discovery of the corpse piques the interest of Lorre, a detective story novelist. He embarks on a journey through Europe to investigate the criminal exploits of Makropoulos played well by Randolph Scott. Along the way he encounters Greenstreet, who he forms an alliance with to eventually find out what really happened. Edward Cianelli is excellent playing an aristocratic Yugoslavian spymaster.
This was a fun film to watch with a nice combination of actors of this era.

this is THE charactor actor team to judge all others by. no two actors combind such suaveness, such style and such fun in their villany as greenstreet and lorre did.
greenstreets' waspy menace, impeccible dress, sinister smile and imposing girth.
lorre's inimitatable voice, those hard boiled eys and a trail of pure slime following him.
candle lit restaraunts, dark booths, late night rendevous, and oh, lots and lots of cigarettes.
now why on earth the rest of their films havent been released on vhs or dvd is beyond comprenension (three strangers, etc - c'mon turner!)but savour this enjoyable romp in the long lost hollywood style at its best
