This documentary tells the story behind the making of one of the most beloved movies of all time, 'Casablanca'.

Although poorly organized, this brief (30 min.) documentary, with a very limited narration by Lauren Bacall, is of enormous importance to film devotees due to its wealth of information dealing with the manner in which CASABLANCA was made, including contributions from the varying writers responsible for the scenario, insights from the authors of the original (never produced) play, data from various historians and musicians, and fascinating tidbits galore (e.g., midgets were used as aircraft mechanics so that a plane mockup would not be minimized by normalsized actors), all interspersed with enough footage from the film to increase one's pulse rate and bring a tear to the eye.
