Sorry people. This really isn't the greatest movie ever made. A story about unrequited love with stagy acting, constant dialogue and no spectacle is certainly not the greatest movie ever made. A movie where that contains basically dialogue for two hours doesn't make a movie great no matter what the characters are saying. Therefore this movie is highly overrated and I recommend that if you want to see a good old movie from around the 50s, see Ben-Hur. Unlike Casablanca it has spectacle and is far better paced.
