Warner Bros Digital Distribution has announced that the legendary film Casablanca – which critic Leonard Maltin calls "the best Hollywood movie of all time", and winner of three Academy Awards, can be viewed directly on the Casablanca movie Facebook Page today. For one day only, US movie fans will be able to enjoy a complimentary showing of the timeless love story at 7 pm ET and 7 pm PT.
The screening celebrates the recent launch of the Casablanca 70th Anniversary Three-disc Blu-ray + DVD Combo Edition from Warner Home Video. The limited and numbered gift set edition will introduce two never-before-seen documentaries – Casablanca: An Unlikely Classic, and Michael Curtiz: The Greatest Director You Never Heard Of. The new documentaries will complete more than 14 hours of bonus material that also includes a compilation of three comprehensive feature length documentaries.
This special screening event also celebrates ‘Inside the Script’, a new digital publishing initiative that gives movie fans an innovative new way to go deep inside films. Inside the Script is a series of highly illustrated e-books that contain the film's actual shooting script, rare materials from the Warner Bros Corporate Archive and more, and are currently available via iBookstore, Kindle and NOOK by Barnes & Noble.
