Why it took so many years I cannot say.

I thought it was a good movie, and appreciated the ending way more than I was expecting. Lots of lines that I've heard all my life now have their origins explained, though "Play it again, Sam" was never uttered.

Next up? African Queen, while I'm on a Bogey mindset.

Don’t feel bad. I watched it for the first time last year...

Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24

One of my all time favorites.



"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Charles Triplett O’Ferrall of Virginia - In Congress, May 1, 1888

The all-time best movie ever made.

Conflicted hero with mysterious past; beautiful woman; world’s worst bad guys; colorful supporting cast members; memorable lines of dialogue; redemption of the human condition.

Casablanca is a movie that's been imitated, ripped-off, and inspired so many other films that when you see the original it comes off as a big cliche.

For another Bogey movie, I recommend Treasure of the Sierra Madre. It was the source for the often quoted, "Badges?..." line.

It's been a long time since I've seen it, but...

Would Bergman have gone with Bogart or the Boyscout she met after him if he didn't make her go with the Boyscout?

She met and married Victor Lazlo before she met Rick...

That said, I think she might have followed her heart, rather than greater purpose, and stayed with Rick...

You should watch it again in the not too distant future, for me it gets even better as I watch it more.

Some time will pass, and I’ll watch it again and it gets better as I can see just how well everything fits together. Such a great piece of work.

I know--it's just a fictitious movie--but that's what I want to hear, even though it's pure speculation! Yes, Lazlo, I can't wish anything negative on that saint, but I couldn't help getting a man-crush on Bogart and empathizing with his (the character's!) feelings in that movie and wanting him to "get the girl" in the end. Then he did the noble thing or did he preemptively do that because he was afraid of not being chosen? Ugh! What a great movie. So I take a little comfort when people like you say Bergman would have chosen him.

My favorite Bogart movie: "In a Lonely Place", 1950. Directed by Nicholas Ray...

Iron Chef has a good reccomndation with 'Treasure'. Bogart as the guy that is crazed with gold fever is scary as hell.

I prefer To Have And Have Not in that genre. Lauren Bacall.

The local theater has 'Flashback Cinema' two nights a week, and Casablanca was on recently: was great to see it on a big screen! Smile

The Maltese Falcon

Tossup between whether Peter Lorre or Sidney Greenstreet is the better scene stealer.

Casablanca is fantastic, Maltese Falcon is a close 2nd.

Casablanca is my all time favorite. A sequel book was published titled As a Time Goes By. If you find a copy, you should buy it.

And burn it. Unopened. Do the world a solid.

Ive posted this before...one of my favorite scenes in the movie...the facial expressions, no matter how subtle, speak volumes to the quality of the actors...from the subtle look of respect from Ingrid Bergman to Paul Henreid to Madeleine Lebeau‘s tearing up at the end of La Marseillaise (she was a refugee from the Germans...so it was a real show of emotion)...great film all the way through!
