Paul Henreid, the actor who played the stoic resistance fighter Victor Laszlo in the film classic "Casablanca," has died at the age of 84.
He created another one of cinema's vintage moments when he sentimentally lighted two cigarettes and handed one to Bette Davis in "Now Voyager." He died last Sunday, a daughter, Monika Henreid, announced Thursday.
His career as an actor and director spanned 50 years. But his roles in "Casablanca" and "Now Voyager" were the defining moments of the aristocratic actor's career.
