Casablanca (1942) Recast 002

We decided to go back to the old Flicks XRayed catalogue and are re-watching and reviewing Casablanca. The Lovely Host Leader of the Underground Movement Tony is joined by Co-host Leader of All Illegal Activities Sarah and guests French Moroccan Gin Joint Owner Ryan, Blue Parrot Owner Katie, and Lace Street Stall Merchant Elisa. We play a game of The Price is Right and The Flicks Awesome Lodge Word Game for the coveted princess crown. So tune in as we discuss at length about Classic Lines, Gambling,WW2 and try to recast the movie if it were to be remade (but it shouldn’t ever be remade) and sooo much more.
