"Play it again, Sam," Charley said, a cigarette dangling from his well-formed lips. He arched his eyebrows, Hollywood style, and waited as he leaned on the piano bar that was located near the entrance to Charley's own bar and cafe.
"Sure thing, Charley," the seductive voice of the piano player said, then gently turned the song she was playing into As Time Goes By. Sam was the house piano player at Casablanca Charley's and had been for two years. The voluptuous, dark-haired beauty's real name was Samela and for a novelty, she billed herself as simply "Sam."
This was perfect for Charley's scheme because he wanted to keep his bar/cafe in the Humphrey Bogart theme, emulating his old movies. There were posters of Bogart all over the walls of the bar, and the menu was a collector's item with the classic pose of Bogart leaning on a bar with a cigarette dangling from his mouth.
