The main reason why Casablanca still holds a place in film theory books, popular culture and oral tradition lies in its powerful storyline that easily gets through to people, featuring characters easy to relate to, dealing with a theme that has for centuries been the artists’ inspiration for creating the best of stories: love and sacrifices we make for a greater cause. Set in the backdrop of the Second World War, evoking the notions of honor, loyalty, friendship and duty, Casablanca is a classic which represents the very best the old Hollywood had to offer, and it’s no surprise the film managed to stay afloat and still be celebrated three quarters of a century since the premiere.
