Howard Koch was a co-author of the screenplay for the famous film, ?Casablanca? (1942). ?Casablanca: Script and Legend? is the definitive account of the making of ?Casablanca? (?conceived in sin and born in travail?), and the first edition (hardback, Overlook Press, 1973, second printing, 1983) contains, in addition to Koch?s account, the complete final script by Koch and Julius and Philip Epstein, an analysis of the film by Richard Corliss, and contemporary reviews of the film by Howard Barnes and Bosley Crowther. Highly recommended.
