"Despite the hullabaloo over the Turner Company's 'restoration' of the title, Voyager's transfer remains superior." -Doug Pratt, The Laser Disc Newsletter

Here's looking at Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in one of the most popular films ever made. Criterion's two editions are renowned for their remastered audio and video transfers. Both contain an informative audio commentary by film historian Ronald Haver. (And to think that the film, directed by Michael Curtiz, was originally slated as a Ronald Reagan vehicle!)

The deluxe CAV special edition also contains:

  • Production photos and publicity materials
  • Producer Hal Wallis' editing notes
  • Original theatrical trailer
  • Excerpts from the Lux radio version of Casablanca, starring Hedy Lamarr and Alan Ladd
  • Wartime footage of the city of Casablanca
