“Such Much?” The Refugee Story and the Émigré Talent Behind Casablanca

Although the legendary, award-winning Hollywood picture Casablanca (1942) has been dubbed “everyone’s favorite émigré film” and “the best refugee film of the war years,” rarely is it discussed in this vein. One of the all-time most cherished love stories and wartime dramas of the studio era may also be seen as one of the earliest and most successful feature films to address the menace of National Socialism, the flight of European refugees, and the personal stories embodied in even the most minor characters portrayed on screen.

Hosted by the University of Pennsylvania's Cinema Studies program. Click the photo for more information.
