The Face Behind the Mask (1941 film)

"The Face Behind the Mask" is a 1941 film that tells the story of a hopeful new immigrant, Janos Szaby (Peter Lorre), arriving in New York City, who is trapped in a hotel fire that leaves his face hideously scarred. Refused employment although still able to work, the only way he can survive is by turning to theft. Janos falls in love with Helen (Evelyn Keyes), who sees the goodness within him.

The screenplay was adapted by Paul Jarrico, Arthur Levinson, and Allen Vincent from the play "Interim" by Thomas Edward O'Connell. The film was directed by Robert Florey.
