Meteorological query

Casablanca is such a wonderfully executed fiction, with generally slack ties to history ... it is in a spirit of pure inquiry that I wonder if it actually rained on the day before the Wehrmacht marched into Paris.

Peter Lorre gets such billing, and is so embedded in my awareness of the movie; it's curious to consider that he gets whisked away before the first act is done.
