Madeleine LeBeau obituary

16 May 2016 5:21 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Last surviving cast member of Casablanca who played Yvonne

The strong plot, the exotic setting, the quotable, piquant dialogue, the cherished performances from a magnificent cast and the emotional Max Steiner score – not forgetting Dooley Wilson as Sam playing As Time Goes By – have ensured that Casablanca (1942) remains the most popular film from Hollywood’s golden age. Madeleine LeBeau (sometimes credited as Lebeau), who has died aged 92, the last surviving member of the cast, was among those whom cinephiles have sanctified for her special connection with Casablanca. LeBeau played Yvonne, one of the many French refugees seeking solace in the Café Americain, run by Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), a cynical isolationist.

You must remember this … at the bar sits the attractive Yvonne, who has obviously been drowning her sorrows because Rick has jilted her. “Where were you last night?” she asks him as he passes by. “That’s so long ago, »

‘Casablanca’ Actress Madeleine LeBeau Dies at 92

15 May 2016 7:47 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madeleine LeBeau, who played Humphrey Bogart’s jilted mistress Yvonne, in “Casablanca,” died May 1 in Spain after breaking her thigh bone. She was 92 and was the last surviving credited cast member of the classic film. Her stepson Carlo Alberto Pinelli confirmed her death to Variety.

In “Casablanca,” LeBeau gets teary-eyed when “La Marseillaise” is played and shouts “Viva la France!” She was among several cast members who were actually refugees from the German occupation.

Her life echoed the film: After she made her screen debut in French film “Girls in Distress” in 1939, LeBeau and her husband, actor Marcel Dalio, fled Paris for Portugal. They were said to have received transit visas that allowed them to enter Spain and then Portugal before continuing on towards Chile. They were stranded in Mexico when their visas turned out to be forgeries and were able to enter the United States with temporary Canadian passports. »
