Rating: B -- "The Mask of Dimitrios" may get bogged down with its storytelling structure, but don't let that keep you from enjoying yet another amazing encounter between Greenstreet and Lorre. Full Review

Romanian-born ex-painter Negulesco aims for sophistication with Hitchcockian banter between rivals -- Lorre and perennially suspicious Sydney Greenstreet -- and a crafty Wellesian figure of hearsay in Dimitrios. Full Review

Description by

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 man's unscrupulous exploits, mystery writer Cornelius Leyden (Peter Lorre) takes up his trail, aided by a mysterious man named Peters (Sydney 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.

The Mask of Dimitrios Movie Lover: from SAN FRANCISCO, CA US -- December, 1, 2019

This is one of the greatest movies ever made in Hollywood. All the stars in it; the script; the acting; and the mood continues throughout the film. A film like this can never be duplicated today with any of the current resources available. The first time I saw this film I was a little boy in the Embassy Theater on Bloomfield Avenue in Newark, New Jersey. Each time it comes up on TV I always watch it again and again.
