Packed with the intrigue which
has long hung over North Africa,
"Casablanca" is now in the second
half of its week run at the Michigan.
Starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid

turing a supporting cast of Claude
Rains, Conrad Veidt, Sidney Green-
street and Peter Lorre, names which
have become synonymous with mys-
tery, "Casablanca" was acclaimed by
the New York Times as one of the
ten best pictures of the year.
The plot of the film revolves about
the attempt of a famous European
refugee, Paul Henreid, to escape from
this North African city and the Ges-
tapo agents which infest it. "Casa-
blanca" was produced by Hal B. Wal-
[is and made under the direction of
Michael Curtiz.
