4K DCP RESTORATION
(1942, Michael Curtiz) “Here’s looking at you, kid.” From unproduced play, to just another Warner B melodrama with Ronald Reagan and Ann Sheridan, to Bogart/ Bergman star vehicle, to multiple Oscar winner, to cultural icon. The dialogue, which fans can now reel off by the yard, was often handed to the cast minutes before shooting, as re-writes proliferated, with the question of whether Bergman ended up with Bogart or Paul Henreid left to the final day of production. The Allied landing in North Africa, just before the premiere, made it a prequel to history. Academy Awards® for Best Picture, Best Screenplay and Best Director. DCP. Approx. 102 min.
