Gene in Casablanca
Gene steps in for Ingrid Bergman during the pivotal climax scene of the classic 1942 film “Casablanca.” Red-dy for Love Gene dons a Madame Alexander “Casablanca” ensemble to look the part. Doing this photo shoot made me wish that this particular Gene had more articulation!
Bogie holds up the chin of a tearful Gene.
The Alexander outfit is a fairly decent recreation of what Bergman wore, with a few minor gripes...buttons on the wrong side of the jacket...no purse...and a hat that just doesn’t have the rakish angle of the original.
