* Some of these have been mentioned before, but the fact that all three leads are, in the end, willing to risk their personal happiness for the others. Ilsa wants to save Victor, but can't bear to kill Rick for the letters, and lets him choose what is best for her and Victor. Victor is willing to let Ilsa go with Rick, as long as she'll be safe. And Rick, of course, gets them both on the plane because they are needed by the Resistance, giving up on his chance to leave Casablanca as well as his love for Ilsa, even lying to Victor to make him believe that Ilsa has no feelings for himself. Even the sleazy and corrupt Renault is ennobled by seeing their actions, bailing Rick out in the end.

* Meta example: As detailed on the trivia page under RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor, the fact that Conrad Veidt, who played the Nazi Major Strasser, personally helped Paul Henreid (Victor Lazlo) escape Europe, sheltered him at his own house and vouched for him to the British authorities since Henreid was technically an enemy alien, so that he could stay in the UK until Veidt had scraped up the money for Henreid to cross the Atlantic.

* A torn and tormented Ilsa tells Rick; "I don't know what's right anymore. You have to do the thinking for both of us - for all of us." She is in other words putting her fate and Victor's in Rick's hands confident that he will do what is best for all three of them. She's right.
