Ta-Ta, Moto

Farewell to sleuth Moto he bid
Of the smell of "Ah, so" he was rid
To Warners he went,
Where he'd soar in ascent
When gelling with jovial Sid.

During the 1940s, Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet became an unlikely but successful team at Warner Brothers. They're shown above in The Mask of Dimitrios (Jean Negulesco; 1944). Top: Lorre as Mr. Moto.
