Casablanca comes cheaper

Some time ago Warner Home Video released an Ultimate Collector’s Edition of the Humphrey Bogart movie Casablanca. While an exciting package, the price tag was a bit hefty. Now, to make the film available in high definition for everyone, the studio is re-releasing a standard version on Blu-Ray Disc in September.

Casablanca: easy to enter, but much harder to leave, especially if your name is on the Nazi’s most-wanted list. Atop that list is Czech Resistance leader Victor Laszlo (Paul Henried), 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. So when Ilsa offers herself in exchange for Laszlo’s safe transport out of the country, the bitter Rick must decide what’s more important – his own happiness or the countless lives that hang in the balance.

“Casablanca” will be in stores on September 15 for $28.99.
