In the Library’s recent online survey, Casablanca was voted the most popular film, reflecting its status as a film classic.Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), a cynical nightclub owner in Casablanca discovers that his ex-lover, Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman), who abandoned him years before, has arrived in Casablanca with her husband, Resistance leader Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid). Rick is forced to abandon his cynicism and decide which side he will be on. This film is a love story, it is a buddy movie, it is a war-time propaganda film and it is a triumph of the Hollywood studio system. So round up the usual suspects and join us for the classic film experience.
