Noah Isenberg has written “We’ll Always Have Casablanca,” to mark the 75th anniversary of one of the most beloved movies of all time. On my show, we discussed:

  • Were Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman the original choices for Rick and Ilsa?
  • Whether movie censors objected to the subplot about Captain Renault and young women;
  • How this movie about refugees included dozens of refugees in the cast;
  • The “Marseillaise” scene with Yvonne singing as tears stream down her cheek;
  • Peter Lorre prank on director Michael Curtiz;
  • The two attempts to turn the movie into TV series — and a Broadway musical version!
