Trivia:
The difference in height between Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman changes throughout the film. This is because Bergman was actually a few inches taller than Bogart, though to create the illusion that it was vice versa, Michael Curtiz had Bogart stand on boxes and sit on pillows in some shots, or had Bergman slouch down (as evident when she sits on the couch in the "franc for your thoughts" scene).See more »
Goofs:
Errors in geography: Near the end of the movie Louie suggests to Rick they go to a garrison just over the border in Brazzaville. It must be quite a walk to the border, indeed, as Brazzaville is roughly 3,000 miles (4.800 Km) and several countries from Casablanca. Incidentally, "Brazzaville" was considered a title for a sequel to Casablanca.See more »

Quite simply the greatest film in American history, 31 December 1999
Author: Shane Hayes (ShaneJayHayes) from Austin, TX

Casablanca is the consummate Hollywood film. It is superbly directed, acted, and filmed. Bogart is amazing, the characters are deep and engaging.

This is easily one of the greatest films of all time. The story is timeless and meaningful, full of heart and should endure for another fifty years with no problems. A true masterpiece and the benchmark by which all other films should be measured. If you haven't seen it, you are at a profound loss. If you have then you know the greatness of this film.
