“Here’s looking at you, kid”. This is an absolute classic. “Casablanca” is based on a stage play that was pretty mediocre by all accounts, but the script is one of the most funny, dramatic, romantic and quotable in cinema history. Everyone in it and working on it just shines.

When I first went to see it I thought “It surely can’t live up to the hype”, but it does. It’s amazing that what was, at the time, just another quick, throwaway studio picture became a legend of cinema.
