The Keith & the Movies Valhalla is a place of tribute for those movies that I hold in the highest regard. These are films that embody everything that is great about motion pictures. These are the best of the best – movies that I truly love and that stand above the rest. There are many great movies that won’t find their way into these sacred halls. But here you will find those films that I believe personify brilliance in filmmaking, storytelling, and entertainment. These glorious 5 star accomplishments are worthy of special recognition as the very best. In other words, these are my favorite movies of all time.
CASABLANCA (1942) – This Humphrey Bogart movie is a classic in every sense of the word. It’s a beautifully written story driven by a superb cast including Bogart, the lovely Ingrid Bergman, Claude Rains, Paul Henreid, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, and Conrad Veidt. Casablanca is loaded with memorable scenes and features some of cinema’s most recognized movie lines. It’s also one of the most romantic movies of all time sparked by a genuine chemistry between the two leads. I remember the first time I saw Casablanca and how it opened me up to the glory of classic cinema. It’s the perfect movie from start to finish.
Casablanca is the first inductee into The Keith & the Movies Valhalla. But there are more amazing movies to come in the near future so stay tuned. What are your thoughts on this Bogart classic? Is it worth the praise it’s received or is it an overrated picture? You now know my opinion. It’s one of the very best. Take time to share your comments below.
