Casablanca by Michael Crutiz

In 1942 the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences awarded their top prize to a film that has gone down in history as not only one of the greatest American films ever made...but the most quotable. Think about it: Humphrey Bogart alone has secveral lines that will not ever be forgotten. This film is Casablanca and in 2007 the American Film Institute said that it was the third greatest film ever in American cinema. Humphrey is the greatest distant romantic lead of all time, and there are few women ever born onto this Earth who are more beautiful than Ingrid Bergman was in 1942. With its sense of Romance, Mystery, Intrigue and Tragic Sacrifice of self-intrest Casablanca has lived on long after the second World War and will continue to live on as a classic American piece of art for a long time into the future.
