This is Not a Valentine's Post
February 14th? This must be the space where the Stub Hubby chronicles their annual St. Valentine's Day viewing of Casablanca, right? Well, not so much. We have grown weary of the juvenile, possibly stoned audience at the Brattle- they tend to giggle at every romantic line, and giggle some more at every slightly antiquated line in the sixty-year-old film. For a change, we decided to watch Casablanca on TV with some friends this year. Ingrid Bergman isn't as magical on my 35" TV as she is on the silver screen, but the champagne we drank made up for it.
