Wait a minute.
Laszlo was a commie?
We’ve watched Casablanca probably 7 or 8 times in its entirety and the thought never occurred to us. In fact, we were puzzled that the movie didn’t make National Review’s top 25 conservative movies of all-time.
Or maybe Michael Moriarty's sarcasm is just lost on us.
Commenters, the floor is yours.
P.S. Whether or not Victor Laszlo was a commie is decoupled from the principles put on display in the movie which we felt warranted inclusion on NR’s list.
