To say that Casablanca was the product of a series of happy accidents which is the traditional assertion usually underscored by such dire trivial tidbits as the possibility that George Raft or Ronald Reagan and Ann Sheridan might have starred in it instead of Bogie and Bergman is pretty misleading It s true that any number of mediocre creations of culture might have been better under different circumstances And it s just as true that many of the great things we admire might have been mediocre given different happenstance We only care about those seemingly accidental choices when they result in something above the ordinary But choices are not accidents and the way Casablanca got made was the way a lot of pictures got made in the Hollywood factory studio system in the early 1940s and at Warner Bros in particular As an example of the studio s product it is not in many ways unusual but because it has become one of the perennial crown jewels of the cinematic art and because it taps into an almost indefinable enigmatic romantic poetic essence and creates an almost universally moving frisson the popular game becomes wondering what might have been How something so wonderful might have been on the turn of a dime here and there so bland and forgottenThe book rather early on puts to rest some of the myths surrounding the movie but also verifies some of the legendary anecdotes that have become well known among film buffs The movie was thought of as a Bogart vehicle fairly early in its life and Ingrid Bergman was a leading choice for leading lady also close to its outset which dispels one of the popular myths Another myth the book challenges one perpetuated for years by screenwriter Koch who later profusely recanted and apologized for was that the original play by Murray Burnett upon which the film was based Everybody Comes to Rick s provided very little material that actually ended up in the finished film In fact a lot of the settings dialogue themes plot elements and characters from the play made it into the movie One of the sad results of this myth is that Burnett and his writing partner Joan Alison have been overlooked in film history for the ample source material they provided for one of the greatest films ever madeIn case you re wondering why I m writing this review already read onI m doing something I ve rarely done here and that is to write a review of a book that I haven t even come close to finishing Part of this is because the inspiration hits me now call it the Casablanca Complex if you will Nonetheless I feel safe in doing so because this book is simply first rate of its kind The way the Casablanca script was honed by its team of writers all working separately and each adding his own uniue thematic and stylistic strengths all guided by the hand of the film s strong willed producer Hal Wallis is related in finely researched and flavorful detail by author Aljean Harmetz The portraits of the witty scriptwriting Epstein Brothers who gave the film its delectable cynical humor and their writer peer Howard Koch who gave the film its political content along with those of directors Michael Curtiz producer Wallis and the moguls Jack and Harry Warner are vivid and their interactions with one another in the making of the film fascinatingly related Sharply rendered also is the profile of the living breathing cavernous entity known as the Warner Brothers studio Harmetz understands what made the studio tick and why it became known as the populist movie brand of the working classes how and why its movies were faster rougher and tougher than the elegantly bred products of MGM and Fox and Paramount The book weaves its story assuredly within the greater context of the world war that informed the film s concerns and how the film reflected propaganda needs and the mood of self sacrifice of its own times as well as the ualities that lend the film its enduring romantic appealReading on Underworld Different Worlds #1 final line This could be the beginning of a beautiful Eternity Ring friendship that he had just closed what would be one of the most enduring and.
