Its scary how one of the best characters in the history of movies was almost played by someone like Ronald Reagan

Sadly enough I've only seen the beginning of Casablanca...it was interesting/amusing...with the plane flying by that is clearly a miniature model plane...

Rofl...funny icon.

"Ronald Reagan was once the front runner for the role of Rick in Casablanca. (1942)."
...but the film became a classic - instead of a second-rate piece of trash.
Now that's progress. Too bad that didn't happen in the political arena as well...

Re: Wow. lol :)

What did he do that was so amazing to the point of making you mourn his death?

Ok, I agree that the movie would have been worse had he gotten the role.

But, do you think it would have had any effect on whether he became president?

Possibly not, because the film would not have been the classic that it is with Bogart. Or, it may have still been a huge success and Reagan would forever have been associated with that character.

And then that leads to the question of whether Rick the character would benefit or hurt someone running for office. I say it'd be a slight obstacle.
