The supposed Charles Boyer line "Come with Me to the Casbah" is said by Wikipedia to appear in the trailer for his 1938 film "Algiers" but not in the film itself.  Is there any solid basis for the claim that it appeared in the trailer?  I don't see the trailer on Youtube, and I don't find the line itself in newspaper databases before 1944.
