"Casablanca" named greatest movie script

Casablanca is one of my favorite movies of all time. If you have the DVD, they have a "making of" documentary included and what's amazing is that they were writing the script as they were filming. The cast was just as brilliant.(here's some cool facts about the film) I really don't have a problem with any of the top ten that "The Writers Guild of America" came up with. I do have issues with some of the other selections. I'm a big Hitchcock fan and although I like "North By Northwest," I'd take "Rear Window" or "Psycho" over it any day of the week.

Here's the full list.
