It's the beginning of a beautiful friendship as the Bit Players talk about the iconic 1942 World War II film Casablanca on this week's podcast. As with any film that has earned the reputation that Michael Curtiz's film has, the guys look at it through a modern populist moviegoer's perspective and see how it holds up to scrutiny. It's a particularly interesting war movie in that it was released during the war itself, so they break down what, if any, implications the contemporary political landscape had on the film. Ultimately the guys look back at the film as favorably as possible, given the fact that they like Marvel movies and Casablanca is like a hundred years old and in black and white.
