Description
Casablanca: easy to enter, but much harder to leave, especially if you're wanted by the Nazis. Such a man is Resistance leader Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid), whose only hope is Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), a cynical American who sticks his neck out for no one - especially Victor's wife Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman), the ex-lover who broke his heart. Ilsa offers herself in exchange for Laszlo's transport out of the country and bitter Rick must decide what counts more - personal happiness or countless lives hanging in the balance.

Winner of three Academy Awards including Best Picture, Casablanca marks its 70th anniversary as a beloved favorite with so many bonuses that no matter how often you've seen it, this beautiful 70th Anniversary Edition looks like yet another beginning of a beautiful friendship with an unforgettable classic.

        I actually purchased this movie as a gift for my spouse. He loved this movie over the years and we had watched it every New Years Day. It couldn't have been a better gift for him.

            What else can be said about this classic of classics
            Since I got this disc for free I am ready to give it as a stocking stuffer and let the younger moviegoers see this movie so they know why we "oldies" like this movie so much!

            Had never seen the movie in it's entirety so thought it was time. Movie acting and viewing was terrific but the soundtrack was inconsistent. I had to keep adjusting the volume up and down through the whole movie, was very irritating.

                I love watching movies from the 40 & 50's. And TMC has so many great ones to view. Plus I love Robert Osbourn. He does a wonderful job giving behind the scene details.

                        Casablanca is a romance movie, but that almost doesn't matter. It really is a period piece, soft and misty around the edges, but it is based on real events. Escaping the WWII German's was very hard. Millions of people wanted out of Europe. Getting to Casablanca was a wish and a prayer made horribly real. Everyone suffered. To set a noir romance in the middle of this was gutsy by itself. All that said, there is much more to this movie. It is a classic because it is about the human condition and especially greed. What stands against self-preservation? Patriotism? Love? Honor? Doing the right thing? And who are we really? Do we hold the line with what we believe in or do we step back and toe the line? The fact that it is a nearly flawless movie only adds to the true depth and pathos. Casablanca had a huge impact when it hit the theaters in the U.S.. The romance was different, dark, oh-so-painfully real, and the answer was clear: Rick did the right thing. I don't know about you but I still cry at the end of this movie.

                          This is a classic. A tale of a romance in the middle of a war. A tale of a marriage that stands the test of a war and a romance in Paris. A triangle with Humphrey Bogart, Paul Henreid, and beautiful Ingrid Bergman is a story that just gets better every time I watch it.

                            The Roger Ebert commentary is a master class on the art of film.

                                      Love this and others classics that I purchased. Great for a Sunday at home or a staycation.

                                        Particular love the fact that the movie's in black & white. Set in the historical era of The Great War, this movie is one of the best love stories of all time! A woman in love with two seemingly very different men . . . who will she choose?
