We'll Always Have Casablanca


Noah Isenberg has written "We'll Always Have Casablanca," to mark the 75th anniversary of one of the most beloved movies of all time. On my show, we discussed:
  • Were Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman the original choices for Rick and Ilsa?
  • Whether movie censors objected to the subplot about Captain Renault and young women;
  • How this movie about refugees included dozens of refugees in the cast;
  • The "Marseillaise" scene with Yvonne singing as tears stream down her cheek;
  • Peter Lorre prank on director Michael Curtiz;
  • The two attempts to turn the movie into TV series -- and a Broadway musical version!
