"Of all the gin joints in all the world, she walks into mine
"Play it again Sam
"Round up the usual suspects
"Louie, this looks like the beginning of a great friedship

Except that he never did say "Play it again Sam".. :)
If I remember correctly, what he said was something like "You played it for her - you can play it for me"..
LOL...
Regardless, This is just really, really, well done Skylar.. You really captured the age and feeling of the movie.. Great job!! :):)

BB - HE didn't say it, but SHE did! He had most but not all of the best lines!!! The "Usual suspects" was Claude Raines':D

Sandy - ...."The fundamental things apply, as Time Goes By"
This really was fun, and it came out of just looking at an old ww2 B&W photo of a girl in a big-brimmed hat.
(This beat-up photo fell out of Rick's wallet as he and louie walked off into the fog, or maybe he just let go of it.)

I am going to have to watch this film again Skylar. I loved it. African Queen was another one of my favorite Bogie films.

Casablanca was indeed a great movie, but personally,
"To Have and Have Not" will always be my favorite Bogie flick. The on screen electricity between Bogie and Bacall (with good reason) would be enough to light up all the appliances in the house! :)

I may not be old enough to have seen the film first time round( I think it was about 1990 when I saw it for the fist time that I remember.) but it is definitely one of my fav's I am a sucker for the old B&W movies. It's a wonderful life is my all time fave.
Fantastic work dear Sky you really got the right look on this one:):)

Great painting and great "old-fashioned" effects! It has the feel of those old hand tinted photographs so popular years ago.

I don't remember a lot of the lines from the movie, but being a big fan of Fedora's and wearing them myself I do remember his hat :D. The painting is wonderful Skylar.
