Madeleine LeBeau. Madeleine the beautiful.
She played Yvonne, Bogie’s jilted lover in the immortal Casablanca. Her impassioned singing of La Marseillaise providing an indelible image.
The passion was genuine. She had fled Paris with Jewish actor Marcel Dalio in 1940. They braved a hurricane torn Atlantic to escape from Lisbon to Chile. Dialo using connections to get them to California and Hollywood.
The rest – c’est l’histoire.
