Casablanca - Cultural Definition
A romantic war adventure film from 1942, in which Humphrey Bogart plays a nightclub owner in Casablanca, Morocco, and Ingrid Bergman plays his former lover.
- Casablanca has a classic blend of love interest and international intrigue, and many lines from it are extremely familiar: “Here's looking at you, kid” (Bogart's toast to Bergman), and “Play it once, Sam — for old time's sake᠁ Play ‘As Time Goes By’” (Bergman's request to the pianist in Bogart's club), which is often misquoted as “Play it again, Sam.”
