MOVIE OF THE WEEK

You have probably heard of this film, even if you have never seen it.
 
If you enjoy this blog, you will probably like this film.

Casablanca (1942)

Casablanca was rushed into release to take advantage of the publicity from the Allied invasion of North Africa a few weeks earlier. It had its world premiere on November 26, 1942, in New York City and was released nationally in the United States on January 23, 1943. 

Exceeding expectations, Casablanca went on to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. Its reputation has gradually grown, to the point that its lead characters, memorable lines, and pervasive theme song have all become iconic, and it consistently ranks near the top of lists of the greatest films in history.

In 1989, the United States Library of Congress selected the film as one of the first for preservation in the National Film Registry for being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.

  EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE  OF THE WEEK

If you don’t know why it is important that we support the Ukrainians in their fight to resist Putin’s invasion, perhaps you should brush up on your history.

Perhaps, this may help.Neville Chamberlain was prime minister of the United Kingdom from 1937 to 1940. He is best known for his role in the Munich Agreement of 1938 which ceded parts of Czechoslovakia to Hitler and is now the most popular example of the foreign policy known as appeasement.

  1. Casablanca; a fantastic classic!
    I loved the last snip in the Titanic Owlkitty video – Kate (Rose) looking at Leonardo’s (Jack’s) sketch book. So funny, as was it all.
    Hoping the mums in your life enjoyed their day!

    • Thank you very much Carolyn for commenting and glad you enjoyed the Owl Kitty video. Yes, Casablanca is a classic and if folks give it a chance, I think it stands the test of time.

      • Similar to ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’.
        It happened to be the Sunday afternoon movie this week. I didn’t sit down to watch it; I’ve seen it many times already!
        However, it was on, in the background. When a familiar and sweet scene presented I could be seen running into the living room to watch. Love Audrey Hepburn. George Peppard did a fine job too.
