I love the extra information tucked into DVDs.

 

Did you know in one of the most memorable scenes in movie history while Ilsa prepares to board the plane that will take her away from Casablanca and Rick Blaine forever. . .

 

off in the distance you see mechanics making their final adjustments on the plane. Because the creators could not afford full-scale equipment, they used a model plane only a few feet high. After the model was created, the director decided that in order to maintain a sense of realism mechanics had to be added to the scene. So how did they accomplish this without the movie looking like King Kong? The people performing safety checks on the plane are midgets.

Phillygl24, you just gave me my first laugh of the day. Thank you! Oh, how did Bogart and Bergman keep a straight face?
