You can make a case for Casablanca being the best of any kind of movie: action, adventure, thriller, espionage or war movie, but it has an undeniably romantic heart (Inspector Renault’s least vulnerable spot). It is a love story. A love story so noble the lovers part for the greater good. Rick and Ilsa, played by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, are also widely acknowledged as iconic celluloid lovers. Their story is one of the great screen romances.
