The Humphrey Bogart/Ingrid Bergman film Casablanca has long been lauded as the most romantic film to ever come out of Hollywood. Bogart's Rick, the American who runs a nightclub in Morocco, set the standard for guarded leading men, while Bergman's Ilsa is the prototypical former lover who returns to complicate the life of the emotionally unavailable hero. Her complication is two-fold: She's married, and her husband is a notorious anti-fascist. Morocco is controlled by the Vichy regime, which makes Ilsa's husband a wanted man. Maybe Rick could help them get to America and safety? And so begins a beautiful love story, with Claude Rains, Conrad Veidt, Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre all playing a part in these lovers' bittersweet reunion. Turner Classic Movies marks the 75th anniversary of Casablanca with a series of nationwide screenings. You can see it on the big screen locally at 2 p.m. Sunday and 7 p.m. Wednesday (November 12 and 15) at the Marcus Wehrenberg Ronnies 20 (5320 South Lindbergh; Tickets are $12.50.
