  • It was a tough choice to make, but I think it was made right by Rick's sacrifice

      Classic love triangle, memorable lines, told against an exotic backdrop of French Morocco. These elements served the artists well back in 1942, and have stood the test of time. Casablanca is a treasure among great films.

      Anything Bogie steps into is going to come out shining like the North Star. His portrayal of Rick Blaine is

      superbly cool, smooth as gin. And just as soaked. Rick is not perfect, but he handles what had been given him as elegantly as a spurned man could.

      I could never truly understand Ilsa’s motives. But I do know this: she did love Rick in Paris, and she loves Victor Laszlo now. She loves Rick still, and her confusion is clearly evident. Did she make the right choice at the end? Did Rick? It was a tough choice to make, but I think it was made right by Rick’s sacrifice. He was a true hero.

      The people who interweave in and out of Cafe Americain and Rick’s life are minimal at best.

      Most memorable are Peter Lorre’s Ugate and Claude Rain’s Captain Renault, but others just come and go, enough to support the plot. I am not sure I understand the purpose of Sydney Greenstreet’s character, Signor Ferrari, but in thinking about it, I’d guess he is Rick’s replacement after Rick leaves Casablanca with Captain Renault, as
      he clearly will be doing in the film’s last scene.

      �Everybody Comes To Rick’s� was the name of the play the film is based on. The scene where the French overpower the Germans with their national anthem says it all. Very powerful to see the strength and conviction of an imprisoned people in time of war.
