Curtiz – on Netflix through 3/24/22

The Hungarian film Curtiz is on Netflix now through March 24, 2022. It’s about Michael Curtiz, the Hungarian film director, and the making of his famous 1942 film Casablanca. It also focuses on his family life. This black and white film is mostly in English but some of the dialogue is in Hungarian.

In the same vein as the play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, the stars of Casablanca are very minor figures in Curtiz. It’s a fine film, shows Curtiz’s good and bad points and apparently is mostly factual.

If you have Netflix, I recommend it. I also recommend Curtiz’s film Mildred Pierce which starred Joan Crawford.
