Casablanca Scene 9

Scene 9

Scene 9

  • People mill about the swanky club, as Sam, the piano player, performs a rousing rendition of"It Had to Be You." He seems to be genuinely into it.We catch snippets of conversations of various patrons, all of whom seem to be looking for some way to leave the country. This includes a couple of men speaking in hushed tones about a boat that's leaving port in the morning. Probably fewer screaming babies on that one. Good call.
