Verses omitted from "As Time Goes By"

by asighisjust, September 30, 2012

Recently I learned there are three verses to "As Time Goes By," omitted from the film music to Casablanca, sung by Dooley Wilson, and now accepted as standard. Rather than retype them here, readers can go to Wikipedia articles, (i) "As Time Goes By" and (ii) read also about the composer, Herman Hupfeld, NOT Max Steiner, who, purportedly did not like the song/verses in the first place. The complete lyrics make more sense for me now than previously, as lovely as they were/now are.

I guess I've tried to watch Casablanca several times, mostly in distracted situations. This summary really helped me understand the plot!

Best detailed synopsis I've ever seen!

One suggestion for something that's a little confusing in the synopsis: the police officer's name is Captain Louis Renault. He should be referred to as "Renault" - not "Louis," which is his first name. This was confusing to me - and required me to go back to figure out who this "Louis" was.

But all in all, a superb effort that clarified a lot of plot points.
