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.
