Reviews

Fascinating, packed with fun trivia . . . but also profoundly relevant in [its exploration] of how our politics and creative industries not only hold a mirror to each other but also to the nation.--Rebecca Prime
A treasure trove of facts and anecdotes.--Peter Biskind
Four out of four stars. . . . A lively account of the making of the 1942 Warner Bros. classic and why it has endured as 'Hollywood's Most Beloved Movie.'--Bill Desowitz
A treasure trove of information . . . but also everything else you could ask for: the fascinating process of coming up with the script, the cast's relation on the set, and the movie's long afterlife in popular culture, right down to the latest SNL parody. Noah Isenberg has produced a delightful page-turner of a book, perfect for every movie fan.--David Mikics
Isenberg gives us . . . a rich miscellany of material that will delight fans of both the film and Hollywood's golden era. His research is clearly second to none.--Lucy Scholes
We'll Always Have Casablanca is a hugely readable and entertaining look at how Casablanca came to be, and how it came to be such an indelible part of American pop culture.--Chris Foran
