Tuesday, July 14, 2015 – Viva la France! – Play La Marseillaise!


Tuesday, July 14, 2015 – Viva la France! – Play La Marseillaise!

On July 14, 1789, the Bastille in Paris was stormed by the people of France, a significant event in the French Revolution. A year later, that day was designated to celebrate the unity of the French nation. Today, Americans celebrate all things delicious and French — macarons, baguette, crème brulée, brie cheese, ratatouille, quiche.

And of course – wine and champagne!

Here is one of the great scenes from one of the greatest movies of all time – Casablanca. You must remember this…

But it has the great Humphrey Bogart, the patriot Paul Henreid and the stunning Ingrid Bergman. It is the scene where Victor Laszlo (Henreid) says “Play La Marseillaise!”
