"Casablanca" is a timeless classic, directed by Michael Curtiz. Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman became icons after this. A sweet and sad love story of two people, set in unoccupied Africa during the early days of World War II. Amazing cast, memorable dialogs, unforgettable story. (Won 3 Oscars)
In Casablanca, Rick Blaine (Bogart), exiled American and former freedom fighter, runs the most popular nightspot in town. The cynical lone wolf Blaine comes into the possession of two valuable letters of transit. When Nazi Major Strasser arrives in Casablanca, police Captain Renault does what he can to please him, including detaining Czech underground leader Victor Laszlo. Much to Rick’s surprise, Laszlo arrives with his wife Ilsa (Bergman), Rick’s one time love. Rick is very bitter towards Ilsa, who ran out on him in Paris, as he was fleeing the oncoming German occupation, but when he learns she had good reason to, they plan to run off together again using the letters of transit.
