Casablanca | Rick or Vick, What's Your Pick


Everyone knows the classic movie Casablanca, the tear-jerking story of a love triangle between charismatic Rick (Humphrey Bogart), beautiful Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman), and the honorable Victor Lazlo (Paul Henreid). I just have to put the question out there. Everyone knows who Ilsa chooses in the end, but I would like to hear which man you would have picked for Ilsa to choose in the end...and why.

My inquiry was inspired by the following blog post on the subject:

Worth Retweeting

@TCManiacs Blogs: Casablanca | Rick or Vick, What's Your Pick http://ow.ly/GzV8 Comment or tweet me #TCM

@TCManiacs Vick: Just another macho European lounge suit lizard? Bet if he survived the war Ilse would have found he had mistresses :D

@TCManiacs it could have been Yvonne, havent seen the movie in a long time

@TCManiacs The movie does end with the two of them walking off into the fog. And there's that if-I-was-a-woman line.

@TCManiacs Casablanca: Isn't it curious that they don't let Ilse choose? Russell T Davies didn't make that mistake with Rose in Doctor Who!

@TCManiacs ... look the more noble of the two men, because Victor could have given up Ilse & he didn't - flawed selfish leader there?

@TCManiacs Vick: I'd feel wronger about betraying a promise than I would about giving up someone I desired. All structured to make Rick ...

@TCManiacs The real love story is Capt. Renault's for Rick.

@TCManiacs Rick, definitely. W/Victor, she would have played 2nd fiddle to his other causes down the line.

@TCManiacs im going with the french chick who was singing the french anthem.

Who is the mysterious TCManiac?

First, I'll tell you who I am not. I am not affiliated with TCM. I am not some superbot created by software developers. I am not being paid by TCM or anyone else to dedicate my time to tweeting. I am a real flesh and blood human being. I am a real maniac for TCM. I really do keep my TV tuned to TCM 24-7. I created the TCManiacs twitter as a result of my sincere passion for watching Turner Classic Movies.

How I got started?
Well, I've been a fan of TCM since its inception. As I lay flat on my back recovering from a disabling health crisis unable to do little more than watch TV and surf the internet, I found refuge watching TCM round the clock. I soon developed an obsessive habit of keeping a browser tab open for the TCM schedule and beating Robert Osbourne's introductions to finding out facts for upcoming movies. My entire day and night became defined by the TCM line-up. At the beginning of 2009 I decided to check out twitter and lucked up on some fellow TCM fans to friend. During the 31 days Oscar I decided to dedicate a twitter just to share my TCM obsession by tweeting about every movie every day of February. I was totally overwhelmed by the number of fellow TCM maniacs that became my following. Its been a WIN WIN in everyway for me. I have had the opportunity to share fun stuff with some incredible fellow classic movie lovers and bloggers. With so many followers I became committed to maintaining the twitter schedule and finding fun stuff for upcoming TCM movies.
How may followers show appreciation?
As I mentioned before, I am not employed by anyone nor being paid for my time maintaining tweets and blog. However, you may express your appreciation for my labor of love by dropping a token of your appreciation in the hat. Simply click the Donate button below. Any amount your heart moves you to give no matter how small will be graciously accepted.
What you mean to me?
Even if you decide to skip tipping the hat, please take the time to comment or send a message with your thoughts and suggestions. Send ideas on more fun stuff you would like featured. Send me links to your own classic movie websites. I just want to hear from you! Let me know what sharing my little obsession is worth to you. Every follower is priceless to me!
