THE GREAT FILM CASABLANCA WAS MADE IN THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

CHERISHING OUR VALLEY           2013

Casablanca, was a very important, anti-fascist film made during the Second World War. It's theme song "As Time Goes By" has become the credits theme for today's Warner Brothers films.

Arthur "Dooley" Wilson played the role of "Sam" the piano player in the great classic film "Casablanca" made in 1942 in the San Fernando Valley. Stars Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman made the film for Warner Brothers in Burbank. The exterior air port scenes were filmed at the historic Van Nuys Airport.  - ps ........ No one ever said, "play it again Sam."
Dooley Wilson was a long time friend of Ralph Muzzillo Sr, from whose collection this photograph was borrowed, courtesy of Ralph Muzzillo Jr.
