Is NSA Director General Alexander playing th erole of Major Strasser?

The film "Casablanca" can only be described as the greatest film ever filmed was a series of happy accidents, as this fabulous documentary narrated by Ingrid Bergman's daughter tells.

I must confess to a *major* crush on Ingrid Bergman, back when I was growing up in the 1970s.  I chalk it up to the fact that *every* *time* that this film was on TV, it consumed the Borepatch family.  All of us gathered around the small balck and white TV to watch it.

I was misinformed. Maybe the greatest line ever in any film.  And it's nice to see the "they filmed two endings" story debunked.

Greatest. Film. Of. All. Time.  If you don't agree, I'm, afraid that you and my 16 year old self can't be friends anymore.

And remember, "I leave the Gestapo alone and the Gestapo leaves me alone" pretty sums up the whole blog post title, n'est-ce pas?

One of my favorite films. 'The Usual Suspect' is what I named my blog roll.
And, the German/French music clip I call 'the battle of the bands'!
