This film shares many tangential connection to "Casablanca" besides simply the Nazi spy story. The film features actors Paul Henreid, Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre, who all appeared in "Casablanca". Behind the scenes, the film features music by Max Steiner and cinematography by Arthur Edeson, who both worked on "Casablanca". Like "Casablanca", this film was produced by Warner Bros. And most interestingly, this film features Hedy Lamarr, who the Ingrid Bergman role in "Casablanca" had originally been written for and who had previously appeared in "Algiers", which was a major inspiration for "Casablanca".
