Casablanca: The Iconic Movie That Set The Standard In Hollywood Forever

The movie Casablanca is an absolute classic. It ranks among the highest ranked movies of All-Time. The movie came out in the year 1942. It is a drama and romance genre. It is very high ranked all many of the movie rating and movie critics lists. Here are the three reason why I think Casablanca is iconic.

The Cast and Crew:

The cast is among one of the best. The three main stars are Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, and Paul Henreid. All three have great resumes. The movie also had a great cast of supporting people who feed well-off the stars. Casablanca won the Best Picture, Director, and Writing. Between the cast and crew, Casablanca was destined for greatness.

The Setting:

The setting of this movie took place during World War 2. It was in Nazi Germany. Many people know how hard of a lifestyle it was. The dictator was Adolf Hitler and he wanted to make a perfect race. He thought he could get rid of what he thought were the undesirables and build Germany to be the world’s superpower. Not many would think this would be the setting for a romance movie, but this was the perfect setting.

The Narration:

The narrator is the character played by Humphrey Bogart. The character owns a bar in Germany. His character does not come off as the romantic type. As the movie progresses that changes. He grows to love and care for Ingrid Bergman. The best plot is that she’s married but falls in love with Bogart.

These are the reasons why this is my favorite movie. The biggest question I get is why I like a movie made 40 years before I was born. I love going to the movies and watching classic movies at home. The cast, crew, setting, and narration is my answer. I also love the final saying “Here’s looking at you kid” as Bogart kisses Bergman for the last time. The fact that he sacrifices himself for Bergman and her husband is awesome.
