Description:During WWII, American Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) runs a nightclub in Morocco. A German courier is murdered while carrying letters of transit that give the bearer the right to leave for America. The Nazis and Vichy French are searching for them. Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid), a freedom fighter, arrives in town and wants the letters for him and his wife Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman). The guy who has the letters gives them to Rick and is then killed. Victor tries to get them from Rick, but Rick isn't interested — at the beginning of the war, he and Ilsa were in love in Paris and Rick hasn't forgiven her for ditching him. Ilsa explains that she thought Victor was dead. She and Rick make up and decide to stay together while Victor leaves for America, but at the last minute, Rick sends her off with her husband and stays to fight in the war. The Vichy police chief, Louis (Claude Rains) has a change of heart and helps Rick.

Reviews for Casablanca

Review - Casablanca

Beyond question the greatest movie ever filmed. It has an awesome cast, great dialogue, fantastic sets. It's a comedy, a romance, a mystery, a war story, a drama ... I've seen it a dozen times, at least, and enjoy it more each time.

My favorite line: Rick is talking to Ilsa about their days in Paris. "I remember it like it was yesterday. You wore blue. The Germans wore gray.
