Mise-en-scene- Costumes: Note the difference of costumes among the characters in the film- not just the main characters but the extras in the background too. Describe the use of costume, and how each “group” of people (Americans, Europeans, refugees, the police, the Nazis, locals from Casablanca, etc.) is represented. What differences or similarities do you see in the use of costume? How does the choice in costume help tell the story?
