"Round up the usual suspects".
The best part of that is it's obvious that Renault and Rick know what happened, and the cops just go along with it. The movie has a lot of really funny scenes that may have been lost on audiences the first time, and that was one of them.
Something else I learned form others who watched with us - Bogey was 5'8" and Rick was over 6'. They gave Bogart boots with 5 inch heels to wear to make him taller. They almost
cast Ronald Reagan in the role instead because he had the height. No offense to Reagan the actor but I think that film is ridiculous with him in it. It's impossible to say for certain, but I can't imagine it's nearly as iconic a film with him in it.
Overall, it was a great film. I think The Maltese Falcon
is on the list, too, and I'll be doing that one as well.
Lama - I doubt Scarface makes the list, but we actually had a discussion about doing TBL. All the women voted "no".
