Comments: Perspectives....

It is classic noir with the femme fatale. As such, your premise is, indeed, correct.

Of course he was played and to top it off he KNEW he was being played and he was such a nice guy he just let it happen......man we could use a little more of him in the world

Has to be about the best movie ever made. (But to show you how warped my mind is, my number two flick is "Blazing Saddles") Rick gets off the fence, so to speak, at the end of the flick, and is it just me, or does it seem his walk is a bit crisper and shoulders a bit straighter for doing so.

Sometimes we know we're being played, but we choose to go along with it anyway.

Rick knew it, even in France.

There are far worse fates; I know some of them firsthand.

I had a similar Bogie moment a few years ago... I thought the exact same thoughts about that phrase: what does it mean? love must be proportional to knowledge, so...

But still there is something else going on... I'll let you know if I get an insight into it...
