Ok, so Valentine's Day is over (phew!) but in case things, er, didn't quite go to plan with your paramour, we have a little solution to help you out of the dog box. Get a copy of Humphrey Bogart as Rick Blaine in 1942 flick Casablanca - a.k.a the most romantic ever - and cook your love a meal to eat while watching. Fail-safe. Here's why the movie's leading man was all that and more.
1. This was Bogart's first romantic role—and that's saying a lot, because this is regarded by many as the most important love story of all time. The lesson for all of us? Even if you're not Mr. Romance, you can easily turn it on when the time is right.
2. In order to appear alongside Ingrid Bergman, Bogart had to rock platform shoes. It takes a seriously secure man with confidence to do that for his lady… Compromise, folks. It's key.
3. The iconic "Here's looking at you, kid" scene was improvised by Bogart. Yep. He's that good.
