Other mistake: When the young Bulgarian man is winning at roulette, thanks to Rick, the croupier spins the wheel and releases the ball. When the ball lands on 22, he shouts, "Vingt et deux, noir farez pas." This means, "Twenty-two. The black didn't make it." The problem is, 22 is a black number. The black did indeed make it.
Captain Renault: Carl, see that Major Strasser gets a good table, one close to the ladies.
Carl: I have already given him the best, knowing he is German and would take it anyway.
Trivia: Most of the secondary cast and extras were people who actually fled Europe to America during Nazi rule. When Laszlo orders the band to play "La Marseillaise," it was very emotional for the cast who sang along and their reactions were very much their true feelings at the time.
