Check it off the list: I finally watched Casablanca. You don’t realize how many references there are to this movie until you see the movie. Something that surprised us is that one of the movie’s most enduring lines, “Here’s looking at you, kid,” is uttered more than once in the movie. Four times!
We checked it out of the library, and the version we watched included audio commentary from the late great Roger Ebert. I never really liked Roger Ebert’s movie reviews with Gene Siskel, but I came to know and love Mr. Ebert on Twitter a few years before he passed away. It was a nice surprise to get the full context and backstory from a friend, long gone.
Sing it with me!
