One of the most beloved American films, this captivating
wartime adventure of romance and intrigue from director Michael Curtiz defies
standard categorization. Simply put, it is the story of Rick Blaine (Humphrey
Bogart), a world-weary ex-freedom fighter who runs a nightclub in Casablanca
during the early part of WWII. Despite pressure from the local authorities,
notably the crafty Capt. Renault (Claude Rains), Rick's café has become a haven
for refugees looking to purchase illicit letters of transit which will allow
them to escape to America. One day, to Rick's great surprise, he is approached
by the famed rebel Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid) and his wife, Ilsa (Ingrid
Bergman), Rick's true love who deserted him when the Nazis invaded Paris. She
still wants Victor to escape to America, but now that she's renewed her love for
Rick, she wants to stay behind in Casablanca. "You must do the thinking for both
of us," she says to Rick. He does, and his plan brings the story to its
satisfyingly logical, if not entirely happy, conclusion.
