    On November 8, 1942 American and British forces invaded North Africa.

    January 23, 1943 the movie Casablanca is released in theaters.

    Every American and Brit has every reason to see this movie and learn about that distant place.

    Just watched it again on Turner Classics yesterday

    One of may all time favorites. Many today don’t understand the difference between occupied France and Vichy France and the impact of the Germans at a place as remote as Casablanca

    This movie should be required for every high school movie to watch. Good insight into what schools no longer teach.
