Product Description

Amazon.ca

Casablanca has remained a beloved favorite for almost seven decades, and was voted the screen’s greatest love story and the #3 film of all time by the American Film Institute (AFI). This classic wartime romance also took Oscars® for Michael Curtiz (Directing -1944); Julius J. Epstein, Philip G. Epstein and Howard Koch (Writing – Screenplay -1944) and the studio (Outstanding Motion Picture -1944).

Synopsis

Casablanca: easy to enter, but much harder to leave, especially if you're wanted by the Nazis. Such a man is Resistance leader Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid), whose only hope is Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), a cynical American who sticks his neck out for no one - especially Victor's wife Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman), the ex-lover who broke his heart. Ilsa offers herself in exchange for Laszlo's transport out of the country and bitter Rick must decide what counts more - personal happiness or countless lives hanging in the balance.

Special Features

The two-disc set of this classic boasts new features and a new transfer. In comparing with the previous 50th anniversary edition, the 2003 edition is arguably better, but there is no debate it has a lot more stuff. As the transfer goes, this edition is pristine, the anniversary edition was excellent, and both are far better than anything seen before. The first-rate, 30-minute anniversary documentary is still here; added is a 90-minute biography on Humphrey Bogart made in the mid-'80s. The best new features are a production archive of photos and production notes (aptly illustrating how the movie was just another in the yearly output of the studio), and two dense commentary tracks. Rudy Belhmer rattles off facts about the production and the key players with machine-gun pacing as he reads, in part, from his book Behind the Scenes. Roger Ebert, as always, is very conversational as he relays facts, dispels myths, and admires the film; it's a real film-fan treat. Less stellar are reminiscences from the children of the stars, an episode from the ill-conceived TV show (1955), and some newly discovered cut scenes. --Doug Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars You must remember this ... Feb. 22 2004
Format:DVD
Aaaahhh ... Bogey. AFI's No. 1 film star of the 20th century. Hollywood's original noir anti-hero, epitome of the handsome, cynical and oh-so lonesome wolf (with his "Casablanca"'s Rick Blaine alone, one of the Top 5 guys on the AFI's list of greatest 20th century film heroes); looking unbeatably cool in white dinner jacket or trenchcoat and fedora alike, a glass of whiskey in his hand and a cigarette dangling from the corner of his mouth. Endowed with a legendary aura several times larger than his real life stature, and still admired by scores of women wishing they had been born 50+ years earlier, preferably somewhere in California and to parents connected with the movie business, so as to have at least a marginal chance of meeting him.
Triple-Oscar-winning "Casablanca," directed by Michael Curtiz, was and still is without question Bogart's greatest career-defining moment, the movie on which his legendary status is grounded more than on any other of his multiple other successes. The film's story is based on Murray Burnett and Joan Alison's play "Everybody Comes to Rick's," renamed by Warner Brothers in order to tag onto the success of the studio's 1938 hit "Algiers" (starring Charles Boyer and Hedy Lamarr). Building on the success of 1941's "The Maltese Falcon" and further expanding Bogart's increasingly complex on-screen personality, it added a romantic quality which had heretofore been missing; eventually making this the AFI's Top 20th century love story (even before the No.

Why do so many people rank this film as one of their perennial favourites? There's hardly been another movie as smooth, witty, smart, or beautiful as Casablanca. Ingrid Bergman is just lovely in her first major movie - the camera smartly lingers on her at any opportunity. Bogart is as rough and as tender as the 1940s-era movie heroes come, and the sly Claude Rains steals every scene he's in. Even the soft, curling cigarette smoke seems to be an actor in the cast. Add to that many famously quotable lines, a stellar supporting cast, and the tragic background of lost love among the ruins of World War II, and you're in for a real treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars You won't believe it April 18 2008
Format:HD DVD
The picture quality for a movie of this age is beyond expectations. Warner Brothers did an amazing job with the remastering process on this film.

This is my favourite movie of all time. I have it on VHS and DVD. This HD DVD was an easy buy, and I was quite impressed with the upgrade in the picture quality. Very well done WB!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Casablanca lives on! May 20 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First, it would appear that ordering the lowly DVD as opposed to the fancy BluRay does not entitle you to any fancy packaging.

As a stand alone product this is a good way to learn the background of the actors, the way the film was made, and the subtle features you may not have known about the cast, e.g. the majority of the cast had fled Europe as the darkness of war rolled over the continent.

Another bonus, is the total film review by Roger Ebert, scene by scene, in his voice which was made some time ago. Ebert, an excellent film reviewer has since lost his physical voice to cancer and it's good to hear him again.

The price is fair, but the packaging left a lot to be desired as an "Anniversary" piece.

Regardless, Casablanca can still bring a tear to a patriots' or lovers' eye!

5.0 out of 5 stars This gun is pointed strait at your heart! July 22 2006
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
1942 the Nazi occupation of France. Refugees must take a long and torturers rout Through Casa Blanca on their way to America; there "Everybody comes to Rick's."

Here we also stay for a while to watch a drama unfold. There are overlapping stories. One of a young couple trying to get to America and the girl wondering if a girl should have to do something was wondering what would happen if her husband, "a boy in many ways", would find out? A second rate crook obtains something of value at the expense of two germane curriers. A Police Captain shocked to find there is gambling going on at Rick's. Many other stories surround the main theme of a love triangle that started in Paris and now can mean so much to individuals or the effort for freedom.

Will the Nazi's win their prize?

Will Capt. Renault get the girl?

Will Rick get away with Ilsa?

This film has become quite a classic. There are many quotes and misquotes attributed to the film. You will find your self kibitzing. One memorable seen for all is the showdown where the Germans are singing "Watch on the Rhine" and Yvonne (Madeleine LeBeau) over powers them leading the "La Marseillaise."

5.0 out of 5 stars The beginning of a long friendship indeed. Jan. 22 2014
By Simon Bergeron TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This 75th anniversary boxed set includes just about everything one could want.

There really is nothing I can add about this film that hasn't been said over the 2/3rd of a century it's been around, so let's instead concentrate of that Warner is offering us.

Three discs are included. The first is the Blu-ray which contains the film and its bonus features. The second is a DVD with three documentaries: "You must remember this", "The Brothers Warner" and "Jack L Warner"... all are captivating, informative and serve the purpose of the boxed set. The third disc is a DVD of the movie.

Honestly, it's been a while I was waiting for such a complete and interesting edition, and Warner truly outdid themselves. They included a 64-page long hardcover book with interviews and photos, a reprint of the poster and a set of coasters (if you're so inclined to recite Bogart's immortal "In all the bars in all the world...").
