Fun Film Fact 07/3/11

During the time before World War II many Europeans fleeing the war ended up in Los Angeles, so the filmmakers were able to cast an extremely diverse group of extras to populate Casablanca. In the "dueling national anthems" scene the extras were not instructed to cry, but many of them did anyway because the scene was very personal to them. (That scene will always be this cinephile's favorite film scene of all time.)
