Casablanca: easy to enter, but much harder to leave, especially if you're wanted by the Nazis. Such a man is Resistance leader Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid), whose only hope is Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart, in one of his most memorable roles), a cynical American who sticks his neck out for no one—especially Victor's wife, Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman), the ex-lover who broke his heart. Ilsa offers herself in exchange for Laszlo's transport out of the country and bitter Rick must decide what counts more—personal happiness or countless lives hanging in the balance. Winner of three Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Director (Michael Curtiz, Mildred Pierce) and Screenplay, Casablanca is the most popular and enduring screen romance of all time. Also starring Claude Rains, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre and Dooley Wilson (singing "As Time Goes By").
