As time goes by, no film equals the popularity of this indisputable classic. In quintessential roles, Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman are former lovers reunited in wartorn Casablanca. Bogey is the cynical cafe owner who lives by his own moral code and sticks his neck out for 'no-one'. Bergman, as the beautiful wife of Resistance leader Paul Henried, finds herself torn between two lovers when she re-enters Bogey's life. The film's great success lies in the inimitable pairing of its two stars, a thoroughly romantic story line, terrific humour and numerous moments of suspense. Of course, that great ending helps, too. Studio filmmaking from the 1940s doesn't come better than this, and nearly stealing the film is Claude Rains as a 'poor, corrupt official' who, as a Nazi puppet, soon discovers the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Academy Award winner for Best Picture.
