Picks and Pans Review: DVD View

Casablanca (Warner, $26.99) You must remember this, and if you don't, it's time you discovered one of Hollywood's greatest classics, a film full of romance, drama, heartbreak and such oft-quoted lines as, "Here's looking at you, kid." When watching, keep in mind that while they were shooting Casablanca (1942), set in Morocco during WWII, stars Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman didn't know if they'd end up together since the writers were retooling the script daily. Extras: This two-disc DVD, saluting the 60th anniversary of Casablanca's Best Picture Oscar win in 1943 and featuring a lustrous, new digital transfer print, is loaded with desirable goodies, including an insightful, enthusiastic audio commentary by film critic Roger Ebert, solid documentaries about the film and Bogart (both narrated by Lauren Bacall, his widow), plus minor outtakes and deleted scenes.
