This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship…

It was on this day, November 26, in 1942, that the film Casablanca had its first showing. The event took place at the Hollywood Theater in New York City.
Although I have at least one friend who doesn’t like it, its definitely in my personal top ten movie list.
In a fair amount of movies that I’ve rented lately, there has been an anti-piracy ad which used clips from Casablanca and implied the characters’ troubles were also about pirating DVDs. The ad was amusing the first couple of times I’ve seen it; now its just annoying.
