my favorite scene from Casablanca...
it gets me every time...

..and doesn't it seem that Conrad Veidt played every dastardly Nazi in every film from the 40's?

Actually, Veidt, a distinguished actor also in silents, in real life was an Anti-Nazi exiled to England after Hitler's takeover in 1933.

I love that touching scene! The French national anthem always sticks in my head for days after I see this movie. (Actually, I needed something to replace The Producers song.)

Interesting aside about Conrad Veidt.
