Three Bogart Classics: Casablanca
The script for Casablanca, adapted from the unpublished play Everybody Comes to Rick's, was undergoing rewrites well into production, creating hesitancy and confusion among the actors. When Ingrid Bergman asked director Michael Curtiz which man Ilsa would choose, he told her to "play it in between," fueling the tension, the sense of uncertainity, which may account for The New York Times film critic Bosley Crowther's remarks upon the film's release. He called Casablanca, "a picture which makes the spine tingle and the heart take a leap." This enduring film continues to have this effect on audiences 70 years later.
Presented in lush 35mm as part of the Humphrey Bogart retrospective, tickets are $6, $9 for a double feature or, for those brave enough to try, see all three films for $12.
