Charles McGraw Fact
In September of 1955, McGraw surfaced in the Humphrey Bogart role as Rick in the TV version of "Casablanca" (1955) for ABC. It lasted only one season. For some reason, however, Rick's last name here was Jason. NBC revived the series again ("Casablanca" (1983)), this time with David Soul of "Starsky and Hutch" (1975) fame and with the lead character's name reverted back to the film's original -- Rick Blaine.
