I will admit that I have been watching a lot of movies lately. I have been in the mood for sappy romantic movies. I decided to check out Casablanca. I had never seen it, and I am not sure if I have ever watched a movie from that early on (1942). I don't generally find that I care much for black and white movies. I would say that I enjoyed it, but didn't love it. I think that movies back then were a little slower moving than ones today. We have very short attention spans these days and need to be wowed to keep watching. I also found that I didn't feel as emotionally drawn to some of the characters like I am in more modern movies.
The thing that really stood out to me in this movie was Ingrid Bergman's nose. Haha, not to be mean, but she has a pretty big nose. I found it refreshing to see someone who had not had a nose job, and who actually had some curves on her body. Not a skinny little bean pole. I thought it was funny how every time she was on the screen, they used some sort of softening filter, and shone bright lights in her eyes to make them sparkle.
