Reference to Casablanca
30 June 2008 | by (North Yorkshire) – See all my reviews

A great British comedy ...

One of my favourites ...

The great Will Hay ...

Fantastic anti-Nazi propaganda achieved by outrageous satire!!

"Im England you must remember to forget your gas mask!!"

Has anyone spotted what I take to be a the reference to 'Casablanca' in the opening scene/sequence...the airport/plane/fog etc???

Even the plane seems a similar type having twin fins on the tailplane.

I think Casablanca was made a couple of years earlier so if I'm right someone had a very keen eye and respect for that great movie!!

Lovers of art-deco interiors will love the laboratory scenes!
