A Gutman is Hard to Find

On the screen, Pete's effete and alarming
Yet with Greenstreet completely disarming
Sid is florid and tall
Lorre's horrid and small
But as scene-eating creatures they're charming!

David Cairns

Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet in their first on-screen pairing, as Joel Cairo and Kasper Gutman in The Maltese Falcon (John Huston; 1941).
