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.
