Amazon.com

Its exotic locale, the romantic chemistry of Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman with a gripping equation of star-crossed romance and hard-boiled valor made Casablanca an Oscar-winning surpise that erased Warner Brothers studio executives' disappointment in George Raft for not signing on as Rick, the suave, mysterious proprietor of the café that serves as ground zero for this timeless 1942 classic. Max Steiner's urgent score, and the equally contentious insertion of Dooley Wilson's now indelible saloon reading of "As Time Goes By," has made the film's music an integral piece of this pop cultural puzzle, finally enjoying a formal soundtrack issue more than a half century after theatrical release. As part of Rhino's ambitious soundtrack project with Turner Entertainment, which owns the film, Casablanca is anything but tossed-off, restoring extensive portions of the original score along with evocative dialog excerpts and annotating the history of the film and its sonic counterpart. Here's looking at you, kid. --Sam Sutherland

Of all the soundtrack recordings I own, this is the most unusual. Yes, it features Max Steiner's score and the various vocal renditions of standards as we saw and them in Rick's Cafe Americain...including Herman Hupfeld's "As Time Goes By." And although this isn't the first soundtrack to incorporate dialog from the film, it's the only one I have ever owned in this format.
The score by composer Steiner is reminiscent of his music for a movie also set in French North Africa (Algiers), with melodies and rhythms that evoke the desert and alien cultures of the region. Interpolating the French national anthem and (reluctantly) As Time Goes By, as well as snippets of Germany's national anthem, Steiner's music sets the tone for the conflict both out in the wider world at war and in Rick Blaine's disillusioned heart.
Adding punch and poignancy to Steiner's score are recordings of "Dooley" Wilson, the Warner Bros. Orchestra, and pianist Elliot Carpenter (the real ivories-tickler behind "Sam Waters'" playing) as they performs such wonderful numbers as "Knock on Wood," "It Had To Be You," "The Very Thought of You," "Frenesi," and, of course, the incomparable "As Time Goes By." And as a bonus, Casablanca fans will be thrilled to hear many of the great lines from the movie, spoken by Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid, Claude Rains, and other cast members. Some of these exchanges will make you smile, others will make you mist up. Others will help you settle bets ("See, no one in the movie ever, ever says, 'Play it again, Sam.'").

"Casablanca" is admired for its great cast and witty script, and the makers of this soundtrack wisely included the complete dialogue along with the music for several scenes, including the one of Laszlo trying to buy the letters of transit, the Germans singing Die Wacht Am Rhein, the patrons of Rick's American Cafe singing "La Marseillaise", Renault shutting the place up because he is shocked- shocked! to find that gambling is going on there, and Major Strausser (sp?) confronting Ilsa. This scene will never be surpassed. Also included with dialogue intact is the airport climax. As fun as it is to listen to that dialogue, the listener will also gain an appreciation for the music. Every note played in the movie is included, as well as several very well-chosen supplemental tracks: the above scenes with only the Max Steiner's score, and Dooley Wilson singing all of "As Time Goes By", which he never gets to do in the movie.

The dialogue, the intrigue, and now the soundtrack. If you are a fan of the movie you should own the soundtrack. The great Max Steiner score is good company on a quiet evening.

"Casablanca" is my favorite movie of all time. I felt extremely happy when I heard that an original soundtrack of Max Steiner's great score was to be released. However, my illusions became shattered when I bought this CD because almost all the dialogue from the movie was included on this Rhino release. I felt so disappointed at that. It would be better to buy the movie instead.

I expected certain songs on this like, As Time Goes By, but there are others. The Knock On Wood song. Two versions of that. One has the call-respond, and the other version doesn't have the respond part-which would be good for parties and such. There are two versions of AS TIME GOES BY, not sure what the thinking was there. There is SOME dialogue from the movie-the one I like the best is where Rick says, " ....of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world...". That quote alone is worth having(in Humphrey Bogart's voice!!)!!!
I like this collect a lot but there are some songs missing, and some of the spoken parts I could do without.
Having said that, I do recommend this, highly!!. It's a recording of a legacy of superb actors, and Dooley Wilson, the guy on the piano. I've never seen him in anything else, and no where else. Lovely and talented! I bought it for someone on the same day I found and bought it for myself. If someone is having a birthday and they love Humphrey Bogart, get them this sound track, even if they have the DVD!!!! SO WONDERFUL!!!

as a rabid fan of Casablanca I almost died of joy when I received the soundtrack as a Christmas gift...and then this experience was repeated the first time I played it. The soundtrack, like the film, is absolutely perfect. fans of both music and Casablanca, and indeed good film in general, will adore this.

I bought this CD to replace a vinyl recording I had of Humphrey Bogart film scores - more than anything, I wanted the stirring and romantic music from Casablanca. Well...it's here, but my favorite parts are buried under a layer of dialogue from the film. Don't get me wrong, it's great dialogue. But if I wanted to listen to that, I'd just watch the movie. I'm hoping there's a CD available out there that lets Steiner's great music stand on its own.
