50th Anniversary Celebration
Remastered Collector’s Edition
The time: World War II. The place: Morocco, seething with European refugees desperate for passage to neutral Lisbon. The film: Casablanca, “the best Hollywood movie of all time” (Leonard Maltin).
The legends loom larger as time goes by. In the 45th film of his career, tough guy Humphrey Bogart at last becomes a romantic leading man (in a role originally intended for Ronald Reagan). He and luminous Ingrid Bergman portray former lovers briefly reunited in the chaos of war. They’ll “always have Paris.” And we’ll always have their incomparable on-screen magic. Bogart is Rick, a world-weary nightclub owner who claims, “I stick my neck out for nobody.” Bergman is Ilsa, fleeing the Nazis with her Resistance-hero husband. Only Rick can help the pair escape, but he refuses… until Ilsa reawakens his idealism.
This 50th anniversary limited edition of Casablanca has been restored and digitally remastered, and includes a “making of” documentary narrated by Lauren Bacall plus the original theatrical trailer. Here’s lookin’ at you, Casablanca.
