Donehueproposed the story as a stage musical for Mary Martin. Arranger and conductor Irwin Kostal prerecorded the songs with a large orchestra and singers on a stage prior to the start of filming, and later adapted instrumental underscore passages based on the songs. Choreographers Marc Breaux and Dee Dee Woodwho had worked with Andrews on Mary Poppinsworked out all new choreography sequences that incorporated many of the Salzburg locations and settings.
The Casablanca Plane Myth: Not a Myth After All? At one time, the airplane in the Casablanca scene of The Great Movie Ride was said to be the actual plane from the classic motion picture. I discussed the reasons with Jim Korkis. Might Be True The Claim: Possibly the most famous farewell scene in all of movies separated Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca, a moment that meant a great deal to lovers and families parted in World War II.
The plane in the scene is a Lockheed Electra 12A and, as time went by, nobody had any idea what happened to it. It has been found and restored to its rightful place in the collective moviegoing memory.
Studio researchers began looking for a plane that looked like the original Lockheed; they found the actual plane in Hondo, Tex.
They could tell from the serial number— The article had the park wrong. The original Lockheed Electra 12A airplane seen taking off at the end of the classic film Casablanca may have been discovered by props people at the Walt Disney Co.
While gathering props for The Great Movie Ride attraction for its theme parks, the company began searching for a similar Lockheed Electra to be part of the final Casablanca scene in which stars Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman say goodby. The main point of both reports—that Disney, while looking for a plane similar to the one in Casablanca, apparently stumbled on the very plane that climbed into the foggy night air on its way to Lisbon at the end of the movie—was amazing news.
Maybe the news was too amazing to be true. Cast Members proudly told guests that the park had the real plane from the movie. Then the story seemed to fall apart. In the early s, 50 years after the release of Casablanca, several books appeared about its making.
Readers learned that for the beloved airport scene at the end of the movie, the actors were on a soundstage at Warner Bros. There was no real airplane on the soundstage, only mock-ups. The famous fog was there to obscure the fakery.
Real Humphrey Bogart; real Ingrid Bergman; fake airplane. Fake Humphrey Bogart; fake Ingrid Bergman; real airplane. Disney backed off from the claim, although many well-meaning Cast Members continued to tell the story.
Location scene of Major Strasser arriving at the airport In a daytime scene about five minutes into the movie, Major Strasser lands at Casablanca Aero-Gare.
In one shot, an elaborate matte painting behind the airport replaces the San Fernando Valley with a Casablanca cityscape and the Atlantic coast. Then a real swastika-emblazoned plane lands in front of the distinctive twin hangars of the airport.
Not a real airport hangar; not a real airplane In contrast, the actors never leave the soundstage for the nighttime airport shots at the end of the movie.
Real Lockheed Electra 12A starting its engines Around four minutes before the end of the movie, there are two very quick aircraft engine shots, with dramatic noise from the mighty piston engines revving up and the propellers turning. One shows the starboard engine.
The other shows the cockpit and the port engine. Mist is being sprayed into the scenes in both shots in an attempt to match the foggy look of the rest of ending.
Skillful sound editing of the engine noise makes this footage blend well with the soundstage footage. The pilot is clearly visible moving around in the cockpit.
An Air France winged hippokamp water horse from Greek mythology logo has been applied over the Lockheed lightning bolt stripe. Also, if the model were this perfect, there would be no need for the fog.
But I tell myself that perhaps I am mistaken. The take-off consists of three separate shots. The first has no actors.
The Lockheed Electra 12A is gaining altitude. It appears to be a real plane flying at a real airport.
