Humphrey Bogart, Claude Rains, Ingrid Bergman, and Paul Henreid
If you were to ask me to name a perfect movie, one of the first films that would come out of my mouth would be Casablanca. Four of the reasons it’s such a perfect film are looking at you here, Ingrid Bergman, Claude Rains, Paul Henreid, and Humphrey Bogart.
These four stars work absolute magic in this film – with each playing their role to perfection. Throw in Sydney Greenstreet (he’s always wonderful, isn’t he??!!) and it’s one of the greatest casts ever assembled.

Casablanca is one of the films that made me fall in love with old Hollywood many, many years ago and I love it even more today than I did then. It’s a timeless, wonderful film and, with that, I do believe I’m going to grab a cup of hot cocoa and sit in the den with a couple of my cats and escape into their world for a few hours.
I’ll tell Ingrid, Humphrey, Paul, Claude, and Sydney you said, “Hi.”
