Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Joy Page (November 9, 1924 - April 18, 2008) was an American actress best known for her role as the Bulgarian bride Annina Brandel in the film Casablanca (1942). Born Joy Cerrette Paige, she was the daughter of Mexican-American silent film star Don Alvarado (born Jos Paige) and Ann Boyar (1908-1990), the daughter of Russian Jewish immigrants. Her parents divorced when she was five. In 1936, her mother married Jack Warner, then head of Warner Brothers 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. She was only seventeen and fresh out of high school.
