When Scenes are Both Unscripted and Unforgettable: The Hollywood Classics
Sometimes, the most memorable parts of movies are in reality unscripted. Those one-liners that you love to use, even today? Well, a lot of them were made up on the spot. Let’s go through the most famous ones.
1. Casablanca – ‘Here’s looking at you, kid’
The 1942 romantic classic film Casablanca is considered one of the best of all times. Along with the stellar performances by silver screen legends Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, the masterpiece set in World War II-era Morocco had one of the most memorable lines in Hollywood history.
When Rick tells Ilsa: “Here’s looking at you, kid,” the phrase was immortalized. But the original dialogue was different. Bogart used this line regularly when playing poker behind the scenes with Bergman.
