THE MAKING OF CASABLANCA Bogart, Bergman, and World War II

by | Read by Scott Brick

History • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

This is an audiobook history of a film that is on almost everyone's list of favorite classics. It's also a penetrating history of moviemaking in the age when the studios ruled. Harmetz, a longtime film critic and historian, traces the development of CASABLANCA from playscript to filmscript, from major to minor casting, and through each stage of production. Her analysis is perceptive, informed, and rich in insider detail. Narrator Scott Brick delivers a solid and thoroughly satisfying performance focused on the factual thread of the narrative with little embellishment. Here is an ideal choice, not only for listeners who cherish this particular film, but also for anyone interested in the realities and practicalities of classic filmmaking.
