“Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine…” Director Michael Curtiz’s iconic and adulated wartime romantic epic - in which American tough-guy Rick (Humphrey Bogart), proprietor of a classy nightclub in Vichy-controlled Casablanca, re-encounters ex-flame Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman), now married to a heroic Czech resistance leader wanted by the Nazis - is the most famous high-point of Hollywood’s Golden Age and studio system. Casablanca has, over the decades, become so much part of the pop culture vernacular that any synopsis of the film seems redundant. It certainly represents, in the public imagination, the epitome of the legendary Bogart screen persona - cynical, solitary, sardonic, self-reliant, world-weary, anti-heroic, but ultimately redeemable by love. (Jim Sinclair, Pacific Cinematheque)
