"If you could play it for her you can play it for me"
The above title should be the real way to remember this classic best movie ever made to be seen. No, the line "Play it again, Sam,"does not exist, but just every other famous lines we all remember does such as "Round up the usual suspects!" The actual move, Casablanca, first released in 1942, has some mistakes as do all movies, but I would have to say for young and old, for the person who lived through it to the acid rocker, this is THE BEST MOVE EVER MADE TO BE SEEN! Is it a love story? Yes! Is it a story of intrigue? Yes! Is it pure entertainment YES! IS IT HUMPHREY BOGART AND INGRID BERGMAN AT THEIR BEST? YES! YES! YES!
The additional disc has the most interesting information yet from interviews with children of the stars, home movies of the stars, what it was like at home with Bogard! Also, a SCENE BY SCENE ANALYSIS BY ROGER EBERT! There is so much more, too!
I WOULD SAY, THIS WAS THE MOST THOUGHTFUL BIRTHDAY GIFT(MY WIFE PRESENTED IT TO ME FOR MY BIRTHDAY) I HAVE EVER RECEIVED. IT BRINGS TEARS TO MY EYES WHEN I WATCH IT (NOT BAD FOR A CRUSTY 56 YEAR OLD GUY)!
If you ever want to purchase a movie set or just a movie that will last a lifetime of watching, this is it! No, there is no"I'll be back special effects" blow em up stuff! Just pure talent: great acting, superb cinematography and absolutely academy award winning directing with Michael Curtiz. He never did anything without a meaning; suit the action to the word, the word to the action.
ALL IN ALL, I'LL BE TRITE, A TRIPLE THUMBS UP!!!!!
