In the latest installment of "What to Watch", IMDb's TV Editor Melanie McFarland chats with "Mad Men" stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, John Slattery, and series creator Matthew Weiner about the drama's extraordinary legacy, as AMC prepares to air its final seven episodes.
Set sometime prior to the events Casablanca (1942), though it breaks continuity with the film in that Rick Blaine has already met Strasser and Heinz in the TV series. Ilsa Lund is mentioned in passing in one episode. See more »
As I recall, and my memory (is not what it use to be), this television series was about the good old war-time adventures in an exotic locale called Casablanca (house white). The actors were especially trying and the audience (TVland) showed appropriate appreciation. Surprisingly the dialogs had a wonderful old-timey crackle about them. Remarkable for it's remarkable supporting cast (except "Scatmen" Crothers.) The Bogey character, played amply by Mr. David "Starky" Soul, was a delight week after week (four weeks). Hopefully the DVD version will include the "lost" episodes. Authentic in every other way, the show was alas, marred by Mr. Soul's too-tight trousers.
