"Casablanca" and Me
Allow me to share with you what I think is a pretty cool story.
I recently became of a Chat Page on Facebook called My "Reel" Life that is devoted to old, classic movies. Yesterday, I got involved in a discussion about the movie "Casablanca" and in my comment, I quoted a line spoken by actor Paul Henreid, playing resistance hero Victor
Laszlo, during the climactic scene at the Casablanca airport. The line was "Welcome back to the fight, Mr. Blaine. This time, I know our side will win."
Okay, just another comment on Facebook that will disappear shortly, right? Well, maybe, but a few minutes later, someone else made a comment that said "Hi, Bob. Thanks for quoting Victor." The person making that comment was Mo Henreid, who just so happens to be the daughter of Paul Henreid! How cool is that?
So, I am now connected to one of the greatest movies of all time by a mere two degrees of separation.
Thank you, Miss Henreid. This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
