“Here’s looking at you, kid”
Recipe for a perfect romance film: take one part war-torn Europe, add in a torrid romance in Paris, sprinkle in some Humphrey Bogart and a dash of Ingrid Bergman and whisk it all together to the sounds of a Moroccan nightclub. Let it simmer until an awkward love triangle develops and someone must ultimately sacrifice their own happiness for love. Top it off with one of the most iconic movie lines of all time and voila: “Casablanca.” In our first annual romantic movie competition, readers chose “Casablanca” as their favorite. Who are we to ignore your wishes? Not to mention — we happen to love it, too.
