(Play It Again, Sam)
Herbert Ross / USA, 1972
English version / Czech subtitles, 86 min
Allan Felix, a neurotic San Francisco movie critic has just broken up with his wife, Nancy. This devastating event has caused him to spiral into a deep depression and look for solace in the classic movies that he loves, particularly the romantic saga CASABLANCA. Allan begins to have conversations with the fantasy ghost of his film idol, Humphrey Bogart, who gives him advice on romance and masculinity. Worried about their insecure friend, Linda and Dick spark Allan into action, which leads to a series of disastrously funny blind dates in which Allan tries, but fails, to be as cool as Bogie. Allan's love life is clearly going nowhere, until his quest for romance unexpectedly leads him into the arms of Linda.
