Set during World War II, the producers of Casablanca (1942) did not expect it to become a legendary classic. But almost 75 years later, fans all over the world identify strongly with the timeless story of the movie--a man and a woman sacrifice their love for each other to support a higher purpose.

Casablanca won 3 Academy Awards for best picture, director and screenplay. Today, it is still one of the most popular films of all time, ranked at the top of many movie critic lists. Lead characters like Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) and the movie theme song As Time Goes By have become pop culture icons.
