Who knew that the screenplay for Casablanca hadn't been completed by the time filming started? In fact Ingrid Bergman was unsure how to act some scenes with Bogie because she didn't know if she was going to end up with him in the end or not. Also, there are some inconsistencies in the screenplay that would have been ironed out if more time had been available. This book is a wonderful companion to the film. It is remarkable how faithful to the screenplay the film actually is. The film critics' essays at the end are interesting, though they all benefit from twenty-twenty hindsight. The large format black and white photos of scenes from the film are keepsakes in themselves, and they appear alongside the relevant text. All in all it's hard to imagine a Casablanca aficionado not wanting to own this book.

If you're a fan of the great classics then you'll be pleasantly surprised with this behind the scenes look at one of the best examples of American film dominance. This detailed account outines the writer's true motivation and vision for his final masterpiece and leaves one with an unfettered look into an ever lasting symbol of the silver screen.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By James D. Crabtree VINE VOICE on November 24, 2011
Format: Paperback
I loved this book. It provided some insight into the script and how it was developed, as well as the script itself. I throughly enjoyed reading the words which have always made this one of my favorite movies, and found out that a few things I thought I knew about the movie were wrong. A great companion piece for anyone who loves Casablanca.

All epic films, such as Casablanca, should have a reference book such as this one. It has the entire script of the movie, has many full page still frames from the movie, as well as articles of different lengths by the makers of this film, the writers, the producer, the director and some of the stars. Anyone who finds Casablanca to be a great story/love story should order this book, before it is no longer available!

Since Casablanca is a classic, I wanted to study the script. This Script and Legend provided much, much more than I expected. The article by screenwriter Howard Koch provides excellent insight into the process and dispels myths. The commentaries each take a different perspective, but the one by Roger Ebert distilled the real reason why Casablanca will always be a classic.

The greatest film of all time - here it is, THE script and the story. The extra parts are good - has some reviews which you wont see in any other book and I have all of them.
