Casablanca: easy to enter, but much harder to leave, especially if you're wanted by the Nazis. Such a man is Resistance leader Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid), whose only hope is Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), a cynical American who sticks his neck out for no one - especially Victor's wife Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman), the ex-lover who broke his heart. Ilsa offers herself in exchange for Laszlo's transport out of the country and bitter Rick must decide what counts more - personal happiness or countless lives hanging in the balance.

The only noticeable issues with the transfer are small things that I would attribute to the master being decades old. Nothing that takes away from the film at all, and still much better than some of the imperfections you see watching a movie in the theaters near the end of its run.
The only hangup I have is with the aspect ratio which is why this release gets 4 stars instead of 5. Casablanca was shot in 1.375:1 (sometimes abbreviated to 1.37:1). 'Widescreen' in movies didn't come around until about 10 years later. This release is in 1.33:1, which is your standard 4:3 non-widescreen TV ratio. Because of the cropping you lose about 2-3% of the image (depending on how it was cropped). Granted, you'd be hard-pressed to notice a big difference without watching them side by side, but I would think they could have done a little better with a new release. The Blu-ray release is advertised to be in the full 1.37:1 ratio.
With the exception of the cropping, it's a good copy and I'm mostly happy with it.
