Episode 59: Casablanca (1942)

casablancaPart 2 of our look at classic cinema advances one year later than the last episode, but finds the ultimate film! Episode 59 is a look at the 1942 classic, a template of the closest thing to a perfect film in cinema history, "Casablanca." Directed by Michael Curtiz, and written in just a few weeks by Julius and Philip Epstein, along with Howard Koch, from an unproduced screenplay by Murray Burnett and Joan Alison, this has become one of the top-rated films of all times! Starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, and Paul Henreid as the love triangle set against just before America entered World War II, this is a story that stands up against any of today's films! Co-starring Claude Rains, Conrad Veidt, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, S.Z. Sakall, Madeleine Lebeau, Dooley Wilson as "Sam," Joy Page, John Qualen, Loenid Kinskey, and Curt Bois, this is the perfect storm of filmmaking - writing, acting, music, cinematography, directing, lighting, sets, costumes... you name it, this film did it right! Plus, the guys will explain why Baseball influenced their decisions about what films will be reviewed in episodes 60 and 61!
