Cast: Ingrid Bergman, Humphrey Bogart, Claude Rains, Paul Henreid
Director: Michael Curtiz

Considered by many to be the greatest Hollywood movie ever made, this WW2 classic has everything you’d want in a good movie — love, hatred, suspense, drama, humor and sadness.

The plot is set in refugee stricken French North Africa in 1942, which is home of many Nazis. Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) owns ‘Rick’s’, a night club which also doubles as an important travel hub in Casablanca that plays host to numerous people. Though the town has people from arms dealers, spies, revolutionaries and the underworld mafia, at Rick’s, everyone seems to enjoy themselves, as Rick is happy serving customers and making money. His friend Captain Louis Renault (Claude Rains), Prefect of Police, gets Rick into a deal as to whether or not Resistance Leader Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid) will be able to come into Casablanca and escape. Laszlo is on the hit list of the Nazis and is a wanted person by the Nazis. Laszlo arrives in Casablanca and comes to Rick’s nightclub accompanied by Rick’s ex-lover, Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman).

Now going back into the past, it’s about two years when the Nazis moved into Paris. At that time Rick was madly in love with Ilsa. But to avoid the Nazis, Ilsa deserted Rick at the train station. Now after that last encounter, Rick sees his love face to face with her new love, a fugitive.

Laszlo cannot get out of the country with the Nazis hounding for him. Rick learns the truth about Ilsa and her reason for leaving. Laszlo’s fate is now in his hands. Ilsa offers herself in exchange for Laszlo’s transport out of the country. Rick is in a dilemma. He must decide what counts more, personal happiness, his fortune and his future.

Upon its release ‘Casablanca’ got critical acclaim and bagged 3 Oscars - Best Picture, Director, and Screenplay. This is one film that absolutely must be on your DVD shelf.
