'Curtiz's film is a classic for a reason -- it's crafted with the precision, detail and beauty of a Fabergé egg; the dialogue is hauntingly memorable and, in Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, it has one of the most magnetic screen pairings in history.' Wendy Ide, The Times

'Michael Curtiz's rereleased 1942 classic is irresistible, big-hearted film-making - a unique kind of romantic noir - with cracking dialogue and a thrilling leading man' Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
