You must remember this: "Casablanca" is considered one of the greatest films ever made. Filmed following America's entry in WWII, the action takes place during four days in December, 1941. The first chapter brings readers up-to-date on the war's progress and then follows the film's script to explain "Casablanca's" significance within the war's context and why people such as Humphrey Bogart's Rick and Ingrid Bergman's Ilse sought refuge there. Now all the action, when put in a proper context, becomes more realistic, as it was to moviegoers some 55 years ago.
Using the script as a key, "The Casablanca Companion" elaborates and clarifies all the historical references in the movie, as well as biographical information on all the principals, and relevant facts on the supporting players and filmmakers. This could be the start of a beautiful friendship.
