TONIGHT: Watch ‘Casablanca’ On Facebook

In one of the stranger occurrences in social media of late, facebook will be streaming the classic Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman film Casablanca tonight at 7pm EDT. The stream will take place here, on Casablanca‘s facebook page. The live stream is presented by Warner Brothers in conjunction with an upcoming DVD and Blu-Ray rerelease of the film. Additionally, a new e-book campaign is being promoted with emphasis on movie script e-publications. The e-books, from a series called “Inside The Script” will bundle classic movie scripts with behind the scenes photos and rare historical details about the various films’ production.

Casablanca, originally released in 1942, won three Academy Awards and is commonly ranked among the best films of all time. The film tells the story of American expatriate Rick Blaine’s involvement with highly sought-after visas to the United States in WWII Morocco. While Humphrey Bogart was already an established actor through his starring roles in High Sierra and The Maltese Falcon, both he and Ingrid Bergman found additional stardom and critical acclaim in Casablanca with each going on to star in a number of successful films throughout the ’40s and ’50s. See the trailer below and be sure to tune in on facebook tonight!
