Knock on Wood song lyrics
Say, who's got trouble? We got trouble! / How much trouble? Too much trouble! / Well now, don't you frown, just knuckle down, and knock on wood! // Who's unhappy? We're unhappy! / How unhappy? Too unhappy! / That won't do: when you are blue just knock on wood! // Who's unlucky? We're unlucky! / How unlucky? Too unlucky! / But your luck'll change if you'll arrange to knock on wood! // Who's got nothin'? We got nothin'! / How much nothin'? Too much nothin'! / Say, nothin's not an awful lot, but knock on wood! // Now who's happy? We're happy! / Just how happy? Very happy! / That's the way we're gonna stay, so knock on wood! // Now who's lucky? We're all lucky! / Just how lucky? Very lucky! / Well, smile up then! And once again let's knock on wood!

Producer Hal B. Wallis nearly made the character Sam a female. Hazel Scott, Lena Horne, and Ella Fitzgerald were considered for the role. Many of the shadows were painted onto the set. Humphrey Bogart's wife Mayo Methot continually accused him of having an affair with Ingrid Bergman, often confronting him in his dressing room before a shot. Humphrey Bogart would come onto the set in a rage. In fact, despite the undeniable on-screen chemistry between Bogart and Bergman, they hardly spoke, and the only time they bonded was when the two had lunch with Geraldine Fitzgerald. According to Fitzgerald, "the whole subject at lunch was how they could get out of that movie. They thought the dialogue was ridiculous and the situations were unbelievable... I knew Bogart very well, and I think he wanted to join forces with Bergman, to make sure they both said the same things." For whatever reasons, Bogart and Bergman rarely spoke after that.

The scene of Maj. Strasser's arrival was filmed at Metropolitan Airport, now known as Van Nuys Airport, just outside of Los Angeles. The movie's line "We'll always have Paris." was voted as the #43 movie quote by the American Film Institute (out of 100). The difference in height between Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman changes throughout the film. This is because Bergman was actually a few inches taller than Bogart, though to create the illusion that it was vice versa, Michael Curtiz had Bogart stand on boxes and sit on pillows in some shots, or had Bergman slouch down (as evident when she sits on the couch in the "franc for your thoughts" scene).

"Here's looking at you, kid" was improvised by Humphrey Bogart in the Parisian scenes and worked so well that it was used later on again in the film. He originally used the same line in Midnight (1934). It is also rumored that during breaks, Ingrid Bergman would play poker with other cast members. Since she was still learning English, Bogart would occasionally watch the game, and he added "Here's looking at you" to her poker repertoire. Casablanca (1942) cost approximately $950,000, some $100,000 over budget. Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman never appeared in another movie together, this being their one and only joint venture.

The movie's line "I stick my neck out for nobody." was voted as the #42 of "The 100 Greatest Movie Lines" by Premiere in 2007. The movie's line "Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine." was voted as the #67 movie quote by the American Film Institute (out of 100). Dooley Wilson was, in fact, the only member of the cast to have ever actually visited the city of Casablanca. When this film won the Academy Award for Best Picture, Jack L. Warner was first on stage to accept the award, beating the film's actual producer, Hal B. Wallis, who was incensed at this slight and never forgave Warner. Wallis, at the time regarded as the "wunderkind" at the studio, left Warner Brothers shortly afterwards.
