Am sure I have used this movie for something before … and I tried not to use it again. I looked through several lists of movies and the only thing I could come up with was a couple of Katharine Hepburn / Spencer Tracy movies … or The Snake Pit, which just scared the Be-Jesus out of me as a kid.
Sorry, but for me, there is only ONE movie from the 1940’s … CASABLANCA. It is divine. It is inspired. It is the kind of movie that you look at in a new way every time you see it. Does she love Rick? Or is she just using him to ensure the safety of her husband, Victor Lazlow. (Which is my personal opinion.) Plus it helps that Rick admires Lazlow and that just complicates things. And that’s just the love story part. The whole Rick and Inspector Renault friendship is reason enough to watch this movie.
To all of you who have put it off … just find it on TV and set the DVR. Then some night when there is nothing else on, set it to play and enjoy.
