       Casablanca is the most romantic movie ever made and as far as I can tell will remain so forever.  There is nothing quite so romantic as a love that cannot be.  Of course, the movie was set in romantic Casablanca during World War II and starred Humphrey Bogart,  Ingrid Bergman and Paul Heiried with Dooley Wilson as (Play It Again) Sam.  The song that Sam played, "As Time Goes By" adds greatly to the romantic tone of the film.   The plot concerns a married couple, Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henried escaping the Nazi's via Casablanca.  In Casablanca they hope to find someone to help plot their escape.  They walk into Rick's Bar, a popular local hangout for all.  This is where it all starts.  Rick is Bogie, Ingrid is Ilsa, a true love last seen in Paris.  The torch remains aflame for both lovers.  Here we get such memorable lines as (from Rick) "Out of all the gin joints in all of the world, why did you have to come into mine?"  and (from Ilsa) "We will always have Paris."  Swoon.   As it turns out, Rick helps the love of his life escape with her husband and that is the end.  You are absolutely sure that Rick and Ilsa have the love of the century and that they will never see each other again.  Bring out the Kleenex.

       As important as this movie has become culturally, it is still a joy to watch. It is a joy to watch the dilemma that is Bogart's life in this film. If you haven't yet, see this movie!
