The Third Man-iac

With this stranger try never to tangle
He's a danger from ev-er-y angle
On your stoop late at night
Down he'll swoop, hold you tight
And, deranged, will endeavor to strangle.

Peter Lorre threatens Margaret Tallichet in the proto-film noir, Stranger on the Third Floor (Boris Ingster; 1940).
