“Here’s looking at you, kid.” “We’ll always have Paris.” “Round up the usual suspects.” “Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.” “Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”
Regardless of whether you have actually seen “Casablanca,” you have probably heard a few of these quotes before. But nothing compares to hearing them in their original context. Moviegoers will have a chance to see “Casablanca” again, or for the first time at 6:30 p.m. today at the Mesa Public Library as part of the Free Film Series.
Since its release in 1942, the three-time Oscar winner has been quoted, awarded, touted, referenced and generally adored around the world. It would seem Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman still has everyone convinced: This is love. This is war. This is the definition of bittersweet.
Specifically, this is World War II, in the bustling Moroccan town of Casablanca, where European refugees come and often stay for quite awhile, hoping to find passage to the United States. Bogart plays Rick Blaine, a dark, brooding entrepreneur who becomes slightly less enigmatic once Bergman, as Ilsa Lund, walks into his gin joint.
