    World War II. Music teacher Christine Radcliffe (Davis), who believes that the man she loves, cellist Karel Novak (Paul Henreid), died in the war, has been involved in an affair with her "mentor", composer Alexander Hollenius (Claude Rains). But when Karel returns unexpectedly hoping to marry Christine, Alexander strives to destroy Novak even as he uses the secret of his past with Christine to torment her. Now, as Alexander drives Christine to the brink of murder, will Novak stand by the woman he loves despite everything he learns?

  • Easy to enter, but much harder to leave, especially if you’re wanted by the Nazis. Such a man is Resistance leader Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid), whose only hope is Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), a cynical American who sticks his neck out for no one… especially Victor’s wife, Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman), the ex-lover who broke his heart. 

    Ilsa offers herself in exchange for Laszlo’s transport out of the country and bitter Rick must decide what counts more – personal happiness or countless lives hanging in the balance. Winner of three Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Casablanca marks decades as a beloved favourite. No matter how often you’ve seen it, this looks like yet another beginning of a beautiful friendship with an unforgettable classic.
