This weeks movie is the most iconic movie of 1942 - Casablanca. Even those not really into vintage will have heard of it , and probably already seen it. If you haven’t, you must!
Set in unoccupied Africa during the early days of WWII, before the US is in the war that is, an American expatriate (Humphrey Bogart) meets a former lover (Ingrid Bergman), and trouble, of course, ensues.
Bogart and Bergman are great together.
The music is wonderful.
The costumes are gorgeous. Including the hats.
Orry Kelly, and Australian, designed the women's wardrobe for the movie.
