Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, Casablanca, 1942 (Image capture from Casablanca film trailer, 1942)

Was ever a movie so loved? Rick and Ilsa. Sam at the piano. The Nazis, the nightclub, the goodbye at the airport. Casablanca is about life at its most fragile and meaningful, movie stars at their most beautiful and moving, and a supporting cast of real-life escapees from Nazi-held Europe.

A film about torn hearts in a torn world, made when America was on the brink of World War II, every frame is a blend of pathos, fear, impossibilities, and love. The moment Ilsa walks into that gin joint, we’re hooked. Film clips bring back the faces, stirring songs, humor, and memorable lines.

Join documentary filmmaker and writer Sara Lukinson as she explores the making of the film, backstage dramas, and the times that turned what was just another film on the lot into an immortal love story of intrigue and transit papers. Discover why we’ll always have Paris.
