At the end of shooting for the movie "Casablanca" in the ending scene the directors decide, against their better judgment, to leave out the words "Louis, I think this is the beginning of beautiful friendship." Unfortunately, the movie does poorly at the box office, and Humphrey Bogart is disappointed.
By now, Bogart is seriously considering resigning from acting to take on Sheridan Downey in the Democratic Primary for the U.S. Senate Seat in California in a year's time.
The race is close, but due to Bogart's name recognition he is able to pull off the upset. He will now face Fredrick Houser in the general election.
