Trivia

Bogart was an extremely avid and skilled chess player, and was known to have hustled games for money when he was younger and living in New York in the Depression (reportedly 25 cents a game). He also hustled chess games for money when he was not shooting his scenes in Casablanca and other movies.. There is a picture of Claude Rains watching Bogart play Paul Henried on the set of Casablanca, and Bogart and his wife Lauren Bacall appeared on the cover of Chess Review in 1945. The scene with Rick studying a chessboard was a position from one of Bogart's correspondence games.

Goofs

When Major Strasser thanks Heinz for the welcome after stepping out of the airplane upon arrival in Casablanca, he and Heinz momentarily shift positions ninety degrees.


Alternate Versions

At the time of release, the film was banned in Germany because the story was considered to be anti-Nazi propaganda by the wartime censors. After the end of World War II, the picture was finally released in Germany but with around 20 minutes of footage cut (all scenes with Major Strasser and all references to Nazism). Other scenes were dubbed so that they had a totally different meaning (Victor Laszlo became Victor Larsen, an atomic physicist). In the 70s the film was redubbed by the ZDF, this time in its uncut form.

Can Ben Barnes Fix Thanos?

Ben Barnes' character in "The Punisher" sees a therapist, so obviously he's perfectly qualified to give his fellow villains Magneto, Mystique, and Thanos some much-needed therapy.
