We’ll Always Have Casablanca What if “Casablanca” had been called “Burbank” instead? It could have been. The entire movie was filmed in the California city named for its dentist founder. “Casablanca” is beloved, it’s iconic, it’s usually listed as one of the greatest films ever made. It’s also filled with surprises and has much to say about life both in wartime and today. “Fascinating, packed with fun trivia ... but also profoundly relevant in its exploration of how our politics and creative industries not only hold a mirror to each other but also to the nation.” (The Los Angeles Times) We’ll Always Have Casablanca celebrates the 75th anniversary of a classic film and considers why it continues to delight audiences all these years later.
