Of all the quoted lines from this movie I think when Rick says ” nobody ever loved me that much” is one that goes often overlooked. Rick is referring to his ( what he thinks ) being left at the train, by Ilsa, and his recent run in with her has stirred up old feelings. He really does think no one ever loved him that much, but he is wrong. I think this line is the key to the whole movie. Once Rick realizes she does, he is made whole, and again becomes the benevolent man he has always been.

joy page had such a promise in casablanca and with her connection one would think she would be offered a studio contract which led me to believe that just like the exit visa she would have to do a bad thing to get one…
This was a result of ridiculously oppressive industry codes (this is immediately prior to the Hays Code). While I don’t disagree that this is an amazing scene, I think we’re better off without them.

Joy Page looked like a pretty girl in the movie Casablanca and she did a great job acting in the movie

Great scene between these two…

This is an example of what is missing in Hollywood today. It is obvious from this scene that the young bride intended to sleep with Renault in exchange for the exit visas, but there is no profanity or explicit reference to it. I remember watching this movie as a child and then I could not infer from what was being said, but as an adult I now understand. Too bad there are not as many savy script writers today that could tastefully say so much but to craft in a way to be understood by adults.

I always wondered if this was the moment in the film that changed Rick’s mind about the war. He was able to distance himself emotionally until this moment. She makes this personal appeal, and from this moment on Rick begins to act.

This clip has one of the most heartbreaking lines in the whole movie in it…
“Nobody ever loved me that much.”

“Nobody ever loved me that much.” And the look ok his face when he says it. Ouch.

Yup, that’s what I thought too, MaximusNYC.

I’ve always taken Rick’s comment to mean (jokingly) that Renault is so “broad-minded” that he may even be engaging in a threesome with the woman AND her husband.

Another take on this may be the word
”broad” ; which guys like Bogart or Sinatra
‘affectionately’ called Women.
Of course, Renault knows that his little’affairs’ are wrong – Yet, as he says ,’
(my heart) is my least vulnerable spot .’
When her Husband is able to pay for the visa (Thanks to Rick) -Renault has a civil
and respectful interchange with her …
Like a Sportsmen would to the ‘one that got away.’
Also this portays Rick protecting an ‘American’ Woman’s virtue.

In response to Lucy Brooks’ question:
All of Rick’s dialogue here reflects his fear of censorship – he cannot say what he really thinks as he knows that she may tell Renault. This is also a scene in which politically inflected sexual practice is discussed, so there is an interesting parallel here between the censored narrative content and Classical Hollywood cinema’s censorship both of politics and of sex.

To be “broad minded” means to push the boundaries of what can be accepted without censorship. So suggesting that Renault is even willing to sleep with a married woman to allow her an exit visa is a sarcastic comment, since in Renault’s terms this is liberating but Rick hardly sees it this way!

Rick is mocking the censorship imposed on him in Renault’s Casablanca implying that Renault’s mind is too “broad” and that censorship has failed, since the censor gets away with too much. Curtiz, or his writers, are making a sly dig at Hollywood…

Please give me your interpretation of what
Ric means when he says that Capt. Renold, ” Is becoming very broadminded.’
???? about her husband being with her .
June 13, 2012 at 5:43 am (UTC 0)
At first I didn’t know she was regarding sex with Renold, now I do.

I will never forget Joy Ann as the daughter in “Oriental Dream” with Ronald Colman. It’s a great picture which for some Godforsaken reason is still unavailable on DVD. She sang two Harold Arlen songs in that one.

Page told Aljean Harmetz (author of “Round up the Usual Suspects”) that she was very scared of Michael Curtiz, who had a bad temper. Humphrey Bogart passed by once and noticed her fretting, so he offered to run lines with her. Page always remembered him with gentleness and patience. She filmed her scenes without a hitch and Curtiz never bothered her.
