Simply put, it is the story of Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), a world-weary ex-freedom fighter who runs a nightclub in Casablanca during the early part of WWII. Despite pressure from the local authorities, notably the crafty Capt. Renault (Claude Rains), Rick's café has become a haven for refugees looking to purchase illicit letters of transit which will allow them to escape to America. One day, to Rick's great surprise, he is approached by the famed rebel Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid) and his wife, Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman), Rick's true love who deserted him when the Nazis invaded Paris. She still wants Victor to escape to America, but now that she's renewed her love for Rick, she wants to stay behind in Casablanca. "You must do the thinking for both of us," she says to Rick. He does, and his plan brings the story to its satisfyingly logical, if not entirely happy, conclusion. ~ Robert Firsching, RoviHide synopsis
I did not get the book, but I got the tape. I had seen the movie way back, years ago in the theater. Enjoyed Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henreid then, and enjoyed all of their performances again, taped. I am a ww2 navy vet.
Casablanca was a quickie, a movie made in the middle of WWII by director Michael Curtiz. It was not a big budget production--the movie's inter-generational appeal lies in the marvelous, restrained acting by Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Claude Rains, and Paul Henreid and the twisting story line. Set in Casablanca during the early years of WWII, the film's story line reunites Bergman and Bogart, lovers in Paris who lost contact as they evacuated that city after the German invasion. All should be perfect but Bergman has her husband with her--a man Bogart knew about (the resistance hero, Henreid) but did not know was married to Bergman. The plot centers on travel documents that will allow two people--a man and a woman--to leave Casablanca. Who will go, who will stay, and why is the question posed and answered. Terrific dialogue, great characters (Peter Lorre, Conrad Veidt); keep an eye on Claude Rains, who delivers many of the film's best lines. One of the screen's great love stories--best seen on a dark, cold, rainy night with someone you love (or really, really like a lot). A classic of cinema, and not to be missed. The first time I saw it (when working at at TV Station in high school), I took the film home and watched it six more times in one all night session. It's that good!
