This review is from: Casablanca  [DVD] (DVD)
I think one of the best movies of its era made.
Rick (Humphrey Bogart) is a night club (cafe) owner in Casablanca,when an ex-girl friend Ilsa Lund arrives (Ingrid Bergman)Accompanied by a résistance leader Victor Laszlo(Paul Henreid) her husband!they are both trying to escape the country while the head of the Gestapo Major Heinrik Strasser (Conrad Veidt)has to keep them from leaving.Two German couriers are killed and letters of transit they carried have been stolen.Has Rick got them? will Ilsa & Victor escape or will Rick use them and turn Victor in to Captain Renault (Claude Rains)?
For trivia fans Sam the night club pianist & singer (Dooley Wilson)could not play the piano!
Also staring and worth a mention Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre and S.Z. Sakall.
If you like this try "To Have and Have Not" also staring Humphrey Bogart its almost the same story line made 2 years later but co-staring Lauren Bacall,Hoagy Carmichael & Walter Brennan.
