OTTAWA’S CINEMA FOR INTERNATIONAL AND INDEPENDENT MOVIES

Casablanca

Must-See Cinema! A romantic Valentine’s perennial!

Poster for the Oscar-winning classic CasablancaNo one making Casablanca thought they were making a great movie. It was simply another Warner Bros. release. It was an ‘A list’ picture, to be sure (Bogart, Bergman and Paul Henreid were stars, and no better cast of supporting actors could have been assembled on the Warner’s lot). But it was made on a tight budget and released with small expectations. Everyone involved in the film had been, and would be, in many other films made under similar circumstances, and the greatness of Casablanca was largely the result of happy chance. 

Seeing the film over and over again, year after year, I find it never grows over-familiar. It plays like a favourite musical album; the more I know it, the more I like it.
