The enduringly popular movie gets another lavish home-video rendering in a new edition including both DVD and Blu-ray copies of the film, plus new special features in two documentaries, one a profile of director Michael Curtiz. Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman make magic as one of the screen's most legendary couples, Rick and Ilsa, whose love affair is revived despite a backdrop of war and her marriage to another man (Paul Henreid).
Peter Lorre, Sydney Greenstreet, Claude Rains and (as piano-playing Sam) Dooley Wilson add to the picture's legend with their memorable supporting performances. DVD extras include audio commentaries by Lauren Bacall, critic Roger Ebert and film historian Rudy Behlmer; "You Must Remember This: The Warner Bros. Story," "The Brothers Warner" and "Jack L. Warner: The Last Mogul" documentaries; deleted scenes; outtakes; and two radio broadcasts. **** (Not rated: AS, V)
