Manny Pacheco (raideoman) | 18 comments It's 1943 Best Picture.

S.Z. Sakall was also fabulous as "Carl the Waiter"

I agree Best Picture ever...Claude Rains it's his best picture in many ways.

Sandy I came across this great quote when helping my son with a paper about Casablanca.

"There are better movies than Casablanca, but no other movie better demonstrates America's mythological vision of itself--tough on the outside and moral within, capable of sacrifice and romance without sacrificing the individualism that conquered a continent, sticking its neck out for everyone when circumstances demand heroism. No other movie has so reflected both the moment when it was made--the early days of World War II--and the psychological needs of an audience decades later." Aljean Harmetz
