“Casablanca” Piano To Be Auctioned

My friend Dee Sushi is a besotted fan of “Casablanca” so I hope Dee is reading this. Anyway, all “Casablanca” fans have the chance to play “As Time Goes By” again and again with the piano from the classic Humphrey Bogart film set to go up for auction, although they may have to pay over $1 million. Sotheby’s is to auction the piano on the 70th anniversary of the Second World War film’s release and have estimated the price at between $800,000 and $1.2 million. As there is a sequel in the works — “Return To Casablanca” — perhaps the successful bidder will be willing to loan the piano out for posterity.
