Who’s Conrad Veidt? Unless you are a cinephile, you probably don’t recognize the name. But you might remember the character he played in Casablanca (1942), which is one of my favorite films of all time. He played the part of Major Heinrich Strasser, the Nazi.
Casablanca is one of the greatest most influential films of all time. TheGreatestFilms.com has it ranked #5, and with a name like that, they must know what they are talking about. At some point I’ll have an article on why I think it’s so timeless and I’ll add a link here.
