152. Casablanca

Directed by Michael Curtiz

I think it was Roger Ebert that said that most people would think Casablanca if someone said the word "movie".  I have always sort of wondered why.  Don't get me wrong; it is a great movie.  But it is not my favorite; not even my favorite Bogart.  Maybe I should ask Harry and Sally.

If you haven't seen this, shame on you.  To Have and Have Not is actually pretty similar, which is another movie I like better.  I think this is definitely a movie that should be watched.  However, it is not as overwhelming as you might think it is going to be.

RATING: ***--

Interesting Facts:

Too many!  Here


  1. This movie has gotten so much attention that it is amazing when someone hasn't seen it. I always liked it, but I agree with you that I like other Humphrey Bogart movies better. (African Queen and The Big Sleep are two that come to mind.)

  2. I am totally in love with this movie and I know that is a cliche in itself, but everything about Casablanca is just damn good.
