I'm baffled by the references to the film Scent of Mystery. I can't seem to find anything about it. It's not even listed in Peter Lorre's film credits in his Wikipedia biography. Does anyone know anything about this film?

i have been doing my Peter Lorre voice to the annoyance of my friends for years!

Thanks for the link, Jed. This must be a very obscure movie. It isn't even listed in Leonard Maltin's video guide.

Peter Lorre first gained fame as a movie star in a 1931 German film titled M, in which he portrayed a serial killer who preyed on little girls. Ick!

Lava just a guess as to why the movie is so obscure - it was smell-o-vision. That is where certain scents were released in the theater a particular times and, in this case, designed to help you solve the film's mystery/riddle. See that attached link for Variety's extract of a review from 1960.

One would think the whole smell-o-vision angle would make Scent Of S Mystery famous instead of obscure. Obviously that was one bit of movie technology that the public did not embrace.

I think availability was more the problem. In the little town that I grew up in I don't think most theaters were equipped to handle the cost of equipment requirements for this new venture. Besides, in 1960, I was eleven, my friends and I were working out the 3D thing of the 13 Ghosts where you received the paper 3D glasses. It didn't live up to its billed advertising either.
