Raiders In Casablanca

"Casablanca" and "Raiders of the Lost Ark" are two of my favorite movies and when I was given an assignment that involved mixing two movies together to make a poster, these two immediately leaped to mind. The two films have so many similarities. Indy was heavy influnced by Humphrey Bogart's various "tough guy" roles, while the weasely Arnold Toht was based on Peter Lorre's more villainous parts. Both involved running into an old flame in a bar as well as combating Nazis.

I tried to set this up as sort of a "what if" Raiders of the Lost Ark was shot during its setting in the 1930s.

Humphrey Bogart as Dr. Henry Jones Junior
Ingrid Bergman as Marion Ravenwood
Claude Rains as Rene Belloq
Sydney Greenstreet as Sallah
Peter Lorre as Arnold Toht
Conrad Veidt as Colenel Dietrich
