A Los Angeles Times bestseller
A New York Times Book Review “Editor’s Choice” Selection
“Even the die-hardest Casablanca fan will find in this delightful book new ways to love the movie they were certain they could never love more.” Sam Wasson, best-selling author of Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M.
Casablanca is “not one movie,” Umberto Eco once quipped; “it is ‘movies.’” Film historian Noah Isenberg’s We’ll Always Have Casablanca offers a rich account of the film’s origins, the myths and realities behind its production, and the reasons it remains so revered today, over seventy-five years after its premiere.
