25 November 2014 4:30 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Wizardly sums! The costume that the matchless Bert Lahr wore as the Cowardly Lion in 1939's The Wizard of Oz and the piano Dooley Wilson played in 1942's Casablanca have each been sold by Bonham's auction house for more than $3 million.

Maybe Not Today: The Underrated Michael Curtiz

5 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

1942’s Casablanca has repeatedly been canonized as the best film Hollywood ever made. Its iconic dialogue produced a bevy of quotable lines that sealed seated their seemingly eternal place in movie culture, and it’s damn near impossible to refer to Humphrey Bogart’s iconic career without bringing to mind his worn mug reminiscing to Dooley Wilson’s iteration of “As Time Goes By” in his empty bar’s depths of night. Never has Bogie been so tragically Bogie, or, for that matter, Bergman so classically Bergman, Rains so nobly Rains, Lorre so campily Lorre, and the film’s team of studio scribes so harmoniously in tune towards a pitch-perfect example of Hollywood narrative convention. Given the vaunted reputation of Casablanca, it’s strange that the film’s director, Michael Curtiz, is so often obscured within observations of its notable ensemble, much less considered the film’s reigning auteur.

"Casablanca" Free Valentine's Day Screenings This Weekend, Redford Theatre, Detroit

12 February 2014 8:05 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Cinema Retro has received the following announcement: 

To celebrate Valentine's Day, the Redford Theatre is offering free admission to this film event weekend in appreciation  gratitude for the support and loyalty of our patrons. That's you!

Join us this weekend for what has been called one of the greatest films Hollywood has ever produced: "Casablanca". The black and white film from 1942 (a colorized version never went over very well) stars Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart, with a stellar supporting cast that includes Paul Henreid, Sidney Greenstreet, Claude Rains and Peter Lorre. While other great films from the '40s faded into obscurity, "Casablanca" just continued to grow in popularity. By 1977, it was the most frequently broadcast movie on TV. As recently as last March, Warner Brothers released a 70th Anniversary Ultimate Collectors Edition Combo Set on Blu-ray. That's all well and good, but how often do you have the opportunity »
