Is there such a thing as a perfect movie? This World War II drama is about as close as it gets. In his most iconic performance, Humphrey Bogart plays Rick, the cynical American expatriate running a saloon in French Morocco. Rick’s lonely existence is suddenly changed with the arrival of his former lover (Ingrid Bergman) and her resistance-leader husband (Paul Henreid). How this film came to be is a drama in itself. It faced multiple casting and director changes, and the screenplay was in constant rewrites by five different writers until the end of shooting. The result was a masterpiece that won three Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and is ranked by many as the most romantic movie ever made.
The Three Stooges’ comedy short You Nazty Spy! (1940) will open the show.
