"Casablanca" – Hollywood’s Classic Happy Accident

Larry uses PowerPoint images and movie clips to re-visit a true classic in this presentation lasting one hour and 15 minutes. It's an engaging look back at the happy accident that resulted in a B-movie capturing the hearts of movie lovers and critics alike for generations. The audience will learn about one of the big screen's most unusual love triangles (Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid) and that the often-quoted phrase "Play it again, Sam" is never actually spoken in the classic favorite. Also, some audience members are sure to be surprised when it comes to that airplane in the famous last scene.

What, that's not what shocked you?  Must be the Halloween candy.  The best bargain in town this week has to be leftover Halloween candy.  One of those giant gut-buster bags of bite-sized morsels such as BabyRuths, Whoppers, KitKats and Butterfingers, my personal favorite, are marked down to half-price now.  That means only 25 or 30 bucks a bag.
