Sort of a class reunion of Casablanca, but not as good, reuniting Bogart, director Curtiz and other key players of that cult picture.

Audience Reviews for Passage to Marseille

curtiz reunites with 4 cast members from casablanca and the result is an excellent one. although the scope of this war film might have been a bit too small, the film had intrigue and solid performances as well as a great story. wonderful film.

Seems to be unfairly compared to Casablance; of course it's not in the same league, but on its own it's a solid movie that can't and shouldn't have to live up to the comparisons with the classic movie. A very franophiliac movie, and a very effective example of good war propaganda.


just about perfect puts together many from casablanca as the studio tried 2 capitolize on its success
