10. Three little people

In the film Casablanca, nightclub-owner Rick Blaine and the beautiful Ilsa Lund meet by chance in Morocco during the Second World War. Years earlier, in Paris, their love affair had come to an abrupt end. Why?

A) Hunted by enemies of her late husband, Ilsa went into hiding
B) Ilsa’s husband, surprisingly not dead after all, rejoined her
C) Rick was captured while on an underground mission in Spain
D) Rick decided it was his duty to return to his wife and children

Your answer — C) Rick was captured while on an underground mission in Spain — was incorrect.

Casablanca, starring Humphrey Bogart as Rick and Ingrid Bergman as Ilsa, is undoubtedly the most popular movie love story of all time. In the end, love itself must be sacrificed as Rick helps Ilsa’s husband Victor, on the run from the Nazis, escape from Casablanca. He persuades Ilsa that helping Victor in the Resistance struggle is ultimately more important than their reawakened love affair: “I’m no good at being noble, but it doesn’t take much to see that the problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world.”
