Actress Page in Casablanca

Joy Page (born November 9, 1924) is an American actress best known for her role as the Bulgarian bride Annina Brandel in the movie Casablanca. Of the fourteen billed actors in that film, she is the only one still alive as of 2005.

Page is the daughter of silent film star Don Alvarado and Ann Alvarado. Her mother later married Jack Warner, then head of Warner Bros. studios. Warner, however, did not encourage his stepdaughter's interest in acting. Page, who initially thought the script to Casablanca was "old fashioned" and "cliched," landed the role on her own and Warner reluctantly approved. Page was only 17 and fresh out of high school.

Warner, however, refused to sign Page to a contract and she never starred in another Warner Bros. film. She went onto appear in a number of films for other studios and made some television appearances. Page married actor William Orr and he became a Warner Bros. executive, leading to accusations of nepotism. She retired from acting after appearing in the first season of the TV show Swamp Fox in 1959.

She and Orr divorced in 1970. Their son Gregory Orr is a writer and producer.
