A Rick’s Cafe server looks at the poster announcing the 70th anniversary tribute to the 1942 movie ‘Casablanca’ in Casablanca, Morocco, on Nov. 24, 2012. A former U.S. diplomat spent two years of work and a million dollars in investments to bring Rick’s Cafe to Morocco’s largest city. The elegant nightclub where Humphrey Bogart pined for Ingrid Bergman was just a set on a Warner Bros. sound stage in California, the film crew never got anywhere near North Africa.
