John Landis on

Casablanca

Released 1942
Distributor Warner Bros.

The movie that cemented Bogart’s star status remains a miracle of studio filmmaking over 50 years later. Troubled behind the scenes, yet every element coalesced into a stirring, satisfying entertainment that still merits its status as one of the top Hollywood pictures ever. We can only imagine the impact it had on wartime audiences.
