Subject: [PW] ? "Come with Me to the Casbah" (Quotation Query #731)

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.
