How many of you have watched the film Casablanca? The movie dates back to 1942. It is a romantic film drama starring stars Ingrid Bergman, Humphrey Bogart, and others. It won an academy award for best picture.  It is a World War II film with people fighting in the resistance against the Germans.

There is a famous scene involving a piano where the lead actress asks the piano player to “Play it again, Sam.”
