Summary
Casablanca: Rick Blaine, an American expatriate with a shady past, runs the very popular night-spot, Rick's Café Américain in Casablanca, French Morocco. Everybody comes to Rick's--gamblers, smugglers, spies, counter-spies, refugees, and more. Rick and his best friend Sam, the club's piano player, keep out of politics and ignore the war. Rick's friend Captain Renault, prefect of the Vichy police, agrees with Rick. But the war will not leave him alone. Ugarte asks Rick to hide two letters of transport that were stolen from a murdered Nazi officer. Rick wants no part of it, but has them when Ugarte is arrested. Rick hears Sam playing a song, which he asked Sam never to play. Ilsa Lund, Rick's true love, requested it. Rick thinks that she abandoned him in Paris when the Nazis invaded the city. Now she is the wife of Victor Laszlo, an underground leader who is the target of a massive Nazi search. Suddenly Rick's letters of transport loom large. Based on the play Everybody comes to Rick's by Murray Burnett and Joan Alison. The African Queen: Thrown together at the outset of World War I, the spinster sister of a British missionary and the derelict captain of the launch The African Queen determine to pilot the boat down an unchartered river in an effort to destroy a German gunboat which prevents invasion by British forces. Setting: German East Africa in 1914. Based on the novel by C.S. Forester
