    "If you've ever questioned whether or not you should try watching Casablanca, let me make the decision for you: yes. There's a reason this movie is a classic. Set in WWII, it's full of tension, quick and clever dialogue, and romance as the world rages in conflict around this small group of people that circumstance brings together. The acting is incredible and the chemistry between the stars is a work of art. Truly deserving of being a classic."

    "One of the best classic movies on Amazon Prime and the definite version to watch for any Zorro fan. It's not so much the story but how it was made and the people who portrayed these beloved characters that made them so special. Definitely much better than the 1998 remake and the one that you should actually watch."

    "There have been so many portrayals and depictions of this film and its characters throughout the years and while all of them were good in their own right, the first and truly classic version will always be dear to me. It was an important part of Hollywood history during that time and should be seen by any film lover."

    "This film combines two of the things that I have always been interested in, the time of prohibition and the reign of gangsters. It tells a great story of one of the most dangerous and chaotic time in American history and the sacrifices of the unsung heroes made in order to improve our lives and make it a little safe to live in during those times."
