What happened that night when Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman) ended up on the couch with Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), after trying to get the Letters of Transit from Rick, and where did their paths take them after the iconic CASABLANCA ending?
While taking a screenwriting class and interviewing Howard Koch for my book on my family in the 1980s, we became like family. I made a promise to Howard that I’d like to share with you now with this New York Post article that recently came out.
Many heartfelt thanks to Lou Lumenick, the chief film critic of The New York Post, for supporting me in making known my continuing determination and belief in Howard’s “Return to Casablanca” treatment, and my wish to find a Warner Bros. approved writer and director.
Meanwhile, I’m very proud to announce that the fabulous David Campbell is aboard to do the music for my HOPPER: IN HIS OWN WORDS documentary. So you know, for a tax-deductible donation one can earn a “Producer” credit on HOPPER thanks to “From the Heart Productions” being Warner Sisters’ fiscal sponsor. (Please contact me with any questions about this.)
May Life and all it’s adventures be going in the direction you imagined.
Much love! Cass
