    How many cigarettes are smoked in Casablanca?

    At the end of the movie, what is remarkable about the plane and the crew?

    Don't know about the cigarettes, but another trivia item about the movie is that the chess game that HB is playing in an early scene is an actual game he was playing by mail with a friend on the East Coast. I had the opportunity to borrow the post cards with the entire game on it from an autograph dealer/friend who owned them and played the game out so that he would know exactly what move they were on when the scene was filmed. HB won the game, by the way !!

    Well, they were all "little people." I don't know the cigarette question though...

    I heard about this from hearing that alien did the same thing. What a way to cut corners....

    Woohoo Sickofthesame! Yes, the studio didnt expect Casablanca to make much money so they gave it a less than generous budget. Therefore, the plane in the background is fake and they used midgets as crew members to give the illusion that the plane was bigger.

    I'll give the cigarette question another day to see if anybody can guess it.
