Lorre was born on June 26, 1904.  At the time of his birth, his hometown was in Austria-Hungary.  But after two World Wars and the Cold War, the map of Europe has changed dramatically and his birthplace now lies within Slovakia.

Lorre's thick accent made him a favorite choice of producers to play any number of nationalities from Italian in "Casablanca" to Japanaese in the Mr. Moto series.
