Play what? Dooley Wilson ( the black dude) couldn't play shiat. He was a singer.

People who hired him for events were kinda pissed.

When I heard about this on the radio I thought they meant the Piano in Ricks club.

Also that article is rendered virtually unreadable by being adressed to the Piano just so they could start it with "Here's looking at you, Piano"

That probably helps explain why it sold for only $600K.

I love Casablanca. One of my favorite films. This news was announced a few weeks ago. Just before the big Powerball jackpot. That piano became one of my dream purchases.

But, I can no longer think about Casablanca without also thinking to myself. "We'll always have parrots."
