* The "La Marseillaise" scene, especially Yvonne's close-up, which was almost certainly the actress's real emotions. The movie was shot in 1941, when France was still occupied by Nazi Germany, and the movie was cast with many refugees with memories of their home being invaded fresh in their minds. At the time this film was made, an Allied victory was still far from a foregone conclusion -- in this context, "La Marseillaise" is a triumphant act of defiance in real life as well.
** Madeleine [=LeBeau=] who played Yvonne died on May 14, 2016 at the age of 92. She had been the last surviving credited cast member.

Added DiffLines:

** Not for everyone: Bulgaria was already a semi-fascist Nazi puppet-state and by the time of the movie events occupied by Germans. So for many people (Jews especially) it would have been a wise move to get out of there before things started to get really ugly (which they eventually did).

Added DiffLines:

** Though in RealLife Bulgaria at the time was probably the safest European country among those that were taking part in the war.

* One young refugee couple have had to flee from Bulgaria; all the wife has to say is that "Things are very bad there...the Devil has the people by the throat."
* The scene of Rick standing [[TrainStationGoodbye there at the train station]] reading that letter, as it starts to rain...
* That whole scene of Rick getting drunk after Ilsa walks back into his life. In an incredible performance by Creator/HumphreyBogart, he wordlessly expresses through the pain on his face how he got his insides kicked in when she left, and after the flashback showing why, he lowers his head in tears.
