Casablanca [1942]

2. Casablanca [1942]. What can one say. The judgment of the world places this one on top most of the time. Made on the fly, it turned out one of the best stories ever told. Ingrid Berman and Humphrey Bogart carry this tale of love and war over the top. Claude Raines lightens the emotional load all the way. The location is Casablanca. while the location of the film you are watching is Morocco, the movie was filmed in Hollywood with one scene at Van Nuys airport. Nonetheless, one gets the look of the desert and the heat. Of course the most geographic line in the movie is where Claude Raines and Humphrey Bogart are outside talking.
Captain Renault: What in heaven's name brought you to Casablanca?
Rick: My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.
Captain Renault: The waters? What waters? We're in the desert.
Rick: I was misinformed.
or watch Misinformed.
