The stellar cast of featured actors in Casablanca
DOOLEY WILSON (Sam) – Cont’d from 1/18/17
OPINIONS OF EACH OTHER
PLAYING OF THE MARSEILLAISE: Dan Seymour [the actor who had guarded the door to Rick’s gambling room] remembers looking up during the singing of the Marseillaise and discovering that half of his fellow actors were crying. “I suddenly realized that they were all real refugees,” says Seymour. Of the 75 actors and actresses who had bit parts and larger roles in Casablanca, almost all were immigrants of one kind or another.

AT THE END: Bogart and Bergman didn’t see each other after Casablanca was finished. Both had become major stars because of Casablanca. Both were about to be nominated for Academy Awards for the first time.
The Oscar statuette is 13 ½ inches high and weighs 8 ½ lbs. Casablanca was nominated for eight awards and won three. At the 1943 Academy Awards, it won the Oscar for Best Picture. This is the award that adds millions to a movie’s ticket sales.
MEMORABLE LINES IN CASABLANCA: “Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” “Here’s looking at you, kid.”
“Play it, Sam. Play ‘As Time Goes By’.” “Round up the usual suspects.” “We’ll always have Paris.” “Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.”

Americans love people with lots of spirit – individuals who are willing to push boundaries – in the best sense of the word. And, Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, has done this with her flair for fashions that really work. This is why we love her.
After reading about Dolce & Gabbana’s new shop at 155 Mercer Street in Manhattan’s SoHo, I decided to pay a visit to see these digs for myself. On Friday, August 17th when it was close to 90 degrees F. I took the Downtown #6 subway and got off at Spring Street (a 10-minute trip). This left me at Spring/Lafayette and from there I walked west to Mercer where I crossed the street and took a short walk to 155 – all told a fairly easy jaunt.
There is something fun about watching the designer's vision on the runway. Yes, not all of the looks are practical, but it helps to bring what once were drawings and ideas to life. That part of the creative process is interesting to me. When it comes to street style, I have grown to appreciate this fashion scene.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
