  1. And, as a present, my favorite movie scene of all time.

    Amen.

    Watched it again. Always brings the tears. Paul Henreid's seminal moment.

    Quatorze Juillet indeed.

    Okay, I'm an idiot - I've never seen Casablanca.

    What's happening there? A group of people (Italian/German) singing their song in a french bar - then the French rising up to outsing them?

    Germans start singing...French guy has band play French anthem. Everyone goes crazy and drowns out Germans.
    German officer then shuts down Rick's place for illegal gambling because he's pissed off.

    Bunch of Nazis signing what I am assuming is the German anthem.

    French shout them down. Basically a "fuck you" to the Nazis who had invaded their country.
     
  9. Germans are singing "Die watch am Rhein," which I think is an old WWI rouser, but not the anthem.
    According to lore, Bogart was completely hammered during this scene, BTW.
     
  10. Fenian, you freedom-hating Francophile.

    From Wiki:

    And as long as we're talking about Francocinema ... let me give a shoutout to Renoir's "Le Grande Illusion" ... another outstanding classic of that era.

    Not to be confused with Styx's "Grand Illusion", a piece of shit in any era.
