What is it about Casablanca? Still asking.

I'm sitting here switching channels between a football game and the old movie Casablanca. I'm not sure why, but even though I seldom can sit through a current movie, if Casablanca comes on, I'm drawn to it like a moth to a flame. I'm not too sure of what it is. Is it the sexy beautiful women and strong handsome men? Is it the great writing? Is it the classic story? I'm not sure.

Today was an emotional day, with ups and downs. Memories of 10 years ago and changes that face me tomorrow, and the next day. And then Casabanca comes on.

What is it about a movie, a song, a sound or a scent? What is it that captivates you over and over, time and time again? I know I've asked this question before. But I still lack an answer.

I guess they are there to remind us what happens when "time goes by".

Yes I am drawn to that movie like a moth to a flame. Its a combination of everything strong men beautiful women and love . It also says just bcause you love you don't alway get what you want . The element of unselfish love .

Well for me, it was Ingrid Bergman she was a hot chick back then with class too, even if it was in B&W- well... I thought so anyway! 'Bogey' was ok but, being a hot blooded American male, Ingrid was my attraction!

Another one of Bogey's chicks back then was Lauren Bacall, also a hot chick with class!

I would have loved to be sandwiched between Ingrid and Lauren any time!

It's proof you can make a movie with class and it will become a classic. Something I think Hollywood forgets most of the time.

I like the strong distinctive characters in it. It is one of my all time favorites.

It encapsulates a time, a place and values that don't exist anymore. Not the movie itself but the time it was filmed, life isnt like that anymore.

Life was not like that then either. Hollywood just like to show idealized ideas of how it should be and presented us a romanticized of ourselves.
