From the Studio:

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), 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, Casablanca marks 60 years as a beloved favorite with a new digital transfer and so many bonuses that no matter how often you've seen it, this Deluxe 2-Disc DVD looks like yet another beginning of a beautiful friendship with an unforgettable classic.

Description

Perennially at the top of every all-time-greats list, and indisputably one of the landmarks of the American cinema. Bogart is an American expatriate and war profiteer in WW II Morocco, content to merely run the Cafe Americain until love (in the form of a luminous Bergman) returns to his life and inspires him to stand up for the French Resistance. An accidental Hollywood masterpiece, it just gets better as time goes by. The 50th anniversary release includes the documentary, You Must Remember This, narrated by Lauren Bacall; two versions of the original theatrical trailer; a five-color booklet; original stills; original shooting script; and a numbered certificate of authenticity.

Notes

"As Time Goes By," the song that became this film's anthem not to mention theme song, was originally written for the Broadway musical "Everybody's Welcome," which opened on October 13, 1931 and ran for 139 performances. The composer, Herman Hupfeld, was also known for the song "When Yuba Plays the Rumba on the Tuba." The film's producer Hal B. Wallis was awarded the Academy's Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award in 1943. In his 1995 memoir, "My American Journey," General Colin Powell lists "Casablanca" as one of his favorite films. Additional credits: Hugh MacMullan (dialogue director), Robert Aisner (technical adviser). Copyright 1943 Warner Bros. Pictures, Inc.
