Quotes

Johnson: Do you love your country?
Michael Curtiz: Which one?
Johnson: That kind'a talk can get you in a lot of trouble.
Michael Curtiz: I'm a man without a country, Mr. Johnson. And I don't owe anyone anything, if that's what you mean.
Johnson: Sure you do. You owe us your unconditional loyalty. Isn't that how orphans are supposed to treat the good people who took them into their homes?

For those who have seen "Casablanca"
27 June 2020 | by patmcg-71782See all my reviews

I actually watched this film twice on Netflix. The second time I had a friend with me who loves Casablanca and claims to have seen it at least 50 times. He really liked this film and found the parts about the filming of Casablanca rewarding. We do wonder how much of the personal story is true, i.e. was Curtiz's daughter really on the set of Casablanca. For those who complained there were no subtitles for the Hungarian language scenes, in Netflix you must turn on subtitles. I have them on all the time as I am hard of hearing. It would be to your benefit to re-watch the film with the subtitles on.
