    Was this the same property which had Kelly Rowland attached for the Donna Summer role?

    Did not realize that Bogart was only 39 when he died. He packed quite a bit of living in his short life.

    And, duh !!......It took reading the article to realize why Bogart named the label Casablanca. Of course, it is obvious, but I guess I never gave it a thought

    @milven,

    The drawing on the label and the 12” sleeves, which I always loved, certainly paid homage to the film.
