Play it Again, Sam..

...and again and again. This year is the seventieth anniversary of  "Casablanca." Though the official anniversary isn't until November, when the movie was premiered, I'm happy to start celebrating early and keep celebrating all through the year.

I don't have a count of how many times I've seen it, but the lines are a part of my vocabulary and I frequently use the phrase, "Of all the gin joints in all the towns in the world..." I also don't have a count of how many times I've listened to "As Time Goes By," but my estimate there could be in the millions. I'd bet there are a lot of other fans of "Casablanca" in Buttercupland.

Thanks for many happy and tear soaked hours, "Casablanca." I only hope I hold up as well at 70!

My college roommate watched this movie over and over and it always reminds me of her. Loved it and the music. Have a good night.
