"Out of the Dark of Night, from the shadows of the senses comes this, the Fantasy of Fear--'Nightmare' . . . starring your exciting
guide to terror, Peter Lorre." One of Radio's 'Masters of the Macabre,' Peter Lorre, was a plum acquisition by MBS. He'd already appeared in hundreds of individual
roles in the thriller genre. He'd even hosted at least three popular thriller Radio programs of his own prior to 1953. One can only assume that MBS made a very generous
offer to Lorre for his services--even as late as 1953--and they got their money's worth.
