** This might also have been an in-joke on Warner Brothers' part--the previous year, Bogart had been playing a New York gangster fighting a group of Nazis led by Veidt in ''All Through The Night.''

** Ebert would later amend his view slightly, stating in his 2007 review of Film/TheAssassinationOfJesseJamesByTheCowardRobertFord that he thinks Renault [[BiTheWay "plays for both teams"]].

* AwardSnub: Considering the movie did win Best Picture and Best Director awards, it's not a major complaint. But Creator/HumphreyBogart - playing the iconic role of Rick - lost out Best Actor to Paul Lukas for ''Film/WatchOnTheRhine'', Creator/ClaudeRaines lost Best Supporting Actor to Charles Coburn for ''Film/TheMoreTheMerrier'', and Creator/IngridBergman wasn't even nominated for Best Actress (instead being cited for her work in ''For Whom the Bell Tolls'').

* TrueNeutral: Captain Renault seems to be having just as much fun when he's collaborating with the Nazis as when he's resisting them. He even flat-out says at one point that he "blows with the wind."



** Even back in the day, Renauld's use of the ScarpiaUltimatum was supposed to come across as scummy and rotten. But given his charming, likable demeanour and [[spoiler: apparently sincere HeelFaceTurn by the end of the film]], it's apparent that nearly a century's worth of civil rights and feminism have made it ''even more scummy than that''.

** In the scene where Rick sells the Cafe to Ferrari. To his credit, he makes sure that Sam gets a decent cut of the profits, but they way they talk about him makes it sound like Rick is selling Sam as part of the Cafe.

** Marcel Dalio plays the roulette table minder. His most famous role outside of ''Casablanca'' was as a Jewish businessman drafted in the French army in World War I in Film/TheGrandIllusion and shortly before his exile from France, as an ineffectual French noble in ''Film/TheRulesOfTheGame.'' Combined with the repeated hints that most of Rick's staff have fallen very far from their formal social station, it can be a little discomforting.

During his exile to America, his mother and sisters were deported to Auschwitz, when he found out about it after the war, he felt lifelong SurvivorsGuilt about it[[/note]]

** Although the war ended with both France and Norway liberated from the Nazis, Victor Laszlo's homeland of Czechoslovakia sadly traded [[ThoseWackyNazis one occupying power]] for [[CommieLand another]] - trapped on the wrong side of the [[UsefulNotes/ColdWar Iron Curtain]] until the [[TheGreatPoliticsMessUp Velvet Revolution]] of 1989, an event Laszlo might not even live to see (although the actor who played him, Paul Henreid, lived until 1992). What's even more tragic is that Czechoslovakia ''did'' attempt to break free of the Communist yoke in the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prague_Spring Prague Spring]] of 1968, only for the Warsaw Pact to brutally put it down without any reprisals from the West, essentially the anti-World War II in that regard (although it ''was'' instrumental in finally turning most Western Communist parties against the totalitarian Soviet Union once and for all).
