Casablanca at Tinside Lido
Cast. Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid, Dooley Wilson.
Doors and bar open from 8pm, film starts from 9.15pm
Over seventy years on, this great romantic noir is still grippingly powerful: a movie made at a time when it was far from clear the Nazis were going to lose. Humphrey Bogart is the tough, cynical American with a broken heart, brooding in the private room of his bar in the Vichy-controlled Moroccan capital. Ingrid Bergman is his former lover Ilsa making a fateful reappearance; Paul Henreid is her husband, the Czech resistance leader Victor Laszlo to whom Rick gallantly concedes first place in Ilsa’s heart. A perfect cast, a perfect script, a perfect film. Rick and Ilsa will always have Paris and we will always have Tinside!
