Bogart and Bergman Mural - Fremont

Bogart and Bergman Mural - FremontBogart and Bergman Mural - Fremont
Just like Bogie and Bacall? Nope, try Bogie and Bergman. A mural of Humphrey Bogart (1899 - 1957) and Ingrid Bergman (1915 - 1982) is the backdrop for the Fremont Outdoor Cinema. The side of the building the mural is on houses Fremont Studios.

The mural pays homage to the movie Casablanca (1942) starring Bogart and Bergman. However, I still think of that 1981 song by Bertie Higgins “Key Largo” with the infamous lyric “We had it all / Just like Bogie and Bacall / Starring in our own late late show / Sailing away to Key Largo.” Oops, wrong movie.
