Casablanca, starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, and Paul Henreid  had its world premiere in November 1942.

In a love triangle in Vichy-controlled Casablanca, an American expatriate must choose between his love for a woman and helping her Czech husband escape from Morocco to continue his fight against the Nazis.

Casablanca won 1943 academy awards for best picture, actor, director and screenplay. Steeped in a moody, suspenseful atmosphere, with memorable music and characters, Casablanca has been hailed as one of the all-time great American films.
