Here’s looking at you, ‘Casablana’
At Wesleyan I teach a course called "The Past on Film," and one of the films screened is Casablanca, now celebrating its 75th anniversary. It’s the most iconic (and possibly also the most romantic and political) American film on the syllabus, and on my way to class to talk about it, I found myself even more curious than usual about students’ reactions.
