Casablanca 'As Time Goes By' Piano On Sale
An iconic piano from the Hollywood classic Casablanca is expected to sell for seven figures at auction in November.
The upright piano is one of two from the film in which actor and singer Dooley Wilson sang As Time Goes By, the song for the lovers played by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, in Rick's Cafe Americain.
The piano that was shown in flashback scenes in Paris in the film fetched $602,500 (£352,986) when it was sold at auction in 2012.
"We have some great pieces from Casablanca," said Catherine Williamson, the director of entertainment memorabilia at Bonhams auction house in New York.
All of the 30 Casablanca items in the sale are from a private collector.
In addition to the piano, the auction will include interior and exterior doors from the Casablanca nightclub where Bogart and Bergman meet again and rekindle their romance.
Signed photographs by the film's cast members, the final draft of the original screenplay and passports and papers created for the movie will also be sold.
The auction will also include a gown worn by actress Rita Hayworth in 1946's Gilda and Barbra Streisand costumes from the films On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, The Way We Were and Yentl.
