Some of Warner Bros.’ best writers turned an unproduced play into a timeless tribute to the glories of love and heroism. As added bonuses, the film made Bogie a top romantic star, showed audiences how sexy Bergman could be, brought trench coats back into fashion and revived the popularity of “As Time Goes By,” the song both stars ask Sam (Dooley Wilson) to play again. A series of coincidences made this film a box-office winner. The U.S. invaded Northern Africa at about the same time as the picture premiered; it went wide when President Roosevelt, Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin met in Casablanca. But it was top work from all involved — from director Michael Curtiz to the lowliest grip and bit player — that helped make CASABLANCA an enduring classic.
