70 years after its initial release the classic film Casablanca starring Bogey and Bergmen still holds audiences enthralled with its tale of international intrigue, melodrama, of redemption and of love lost and found. Despite the grand scope of the film's backdrop of World war II and its portrayal of the plight of the world's refugees displaced by the Nazis and their allies it is a very intimate and personal story. The characters, much like people in real life are flawed, yet likeable and and we root for them to overcome their personal tragedies and heartaches as we follow them on their journey as they rage against the darkness and make their way to the light.

Casablanca on the big screen

What a gem, I have seen this movie a thousand times on tv but because of my age never on the big screen and with a audience. The experience was just awesome. I saw this as part of the fathom series in conjunction with Tuner Classic Movies. The intro to the movie with Robert Osborne as the narrator was great with behind the scenes tid bits about the plot and the making of this iconic film. The theater was just wonderful with huge leather chairs and a wait staff to serve your every whim. The overall experience was a ten. Thanks TCM

Love it on the big screen. I've seen this movie on my TV hundreds of times, but never felt the emotions like I experienced watching it on the big screen. It was like seeing it for the first time.

A Timeless Classic

Two of Hollywoods greatest stars, Bogart and Bergman, doesn't get any better. Even though I have seen this film many times on television, being able to see it as it was meant to be seen was like seeing it for the first time. Bogart turned in a truly dramatic performance of a man jaded by his experiences and what he saw as a betrayal by the women he loved. Seeing his underlying humanity and decency come through in moments like helping he young Bulgarian oouple escape Casablanca without the girl having to disgrace herself. Ingrid Bergman as well delivered a timeless performance as Ilsa Lund, whose conflicted loyalties jolt Rick back to reality as he begins to regain his sense of right and wrong. For me, one of my favorite characters is Louie. His corrupt, cynical persona serves as his shield until Rick's act of sacrifice breaks through to his patriotism and pride.
