This wonderfully atmospheric portrait of Humphrey Bogart was specifically staged for Casablanca as he, with Ingrid Bergman and portraits of several other cast members, were photographed against the same background in association with the publicity of that film. Bogart displays all the smooth coolness of his characterization of Rick in what became 1943’s Best Picture for the Academy Awards.
