On 8/4 Stuart said. " In addition, the possibilities of a sequel are
often in place before the first on is out (Casablanca II anyone?)."
Just in case not everybody knows:  Warner Books (the hacks! ) has hired two
writers to do a book sequel to Casablanca, imaginatively titled "Casablanca,
the Sequel".  The writers are Gerald Petievich, "To Live and Die in LA" and
Gabrielle Humphreys, a mystery writer (no pun intended).  The book will be
followed by a tv mini-series.  I can hardly wait.
But, in addition:  there was a proposal for a sequel way back in '43 -  Rick
and Ilsa lived happily ever after.
