I have no comments about this film from 1942 whatsoever…
Maybe it’s sufficient to say that it’s probably on more lists of the greatest films of all time than any other single movie.
Or that it tops the lists of films with great quotes.
Funny enough one of the lines most closely associated with the film – Play it again, Sam” – is a misquotation. When Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman) first enters the Café Americain, she spots Sam and asks him to “Play it once, Sam, for old times sake.” After he feigns ignorance, she responds, “Play it, Sam. Play “As time goes by.” Later that night, alone with Sam, Rick (Humphrey Bogart) says “You played it for her, you can play it for me,” and “if she can stand it, I can! Play it!”
The film was directed by Michael Curtiz.
