image from the film CASABLANCA

Cornell Cinema plays it again, Sam, with this favorite American classic. Bogey plays American expatriate Rick Blaine, “the cynical cafe boss... who doesn’t give a damn about anything but himself,” yet who’s inwardly “an idealist, a sentimentalist motivated by a deep-seated honesty” (Fifty Classic Motion Pictures)—of course. Ranked #3 on the American Film Institute's top 100 American films of all time.

Based on Cornell alum Murray Burnett’s ’31 play Everybody Comes to Rick’s.
