Paul Henreid, the stoically elegant matinee idol of the 1930s and '40s whose portrayal of resistance fighter Victor Laszlo in "Casablanca" made him a prized part of the Hollywood legend Marlboro Lights, has died.

Henreid, who in another of cinema's legendary roles lit two cigarettes, held them briefly in his mouth and then handed one to Bette Davis in "Now, Voyager," died Sunday in Santa Monica of heart failure. But after his father died during World War I, there was little left of the family fortune.

Young Paul had developed a taste for acting while in school. His family opposed a dramatic career, so he studied book publishing while continuing to act in a Vienna conservatory.

While performing in a play there, he was seen by Otto Preminger, the future producer and director who then was working for director Max Reinhardt. His first role for Reinhardt was as a schoolboy in "Faust" in 1933.

He enjoyed a great success in "Men in White" (135 performances) in Vienna and "Mizzi" where he was seen by a London entrepreneur who invited him to England Cheap Cigarettes Free Shipping. For the next few years he worked on stages in London and Vienna but eventually fled Hitler's Europe and settled in Great Britain, where he starred in an anti-Nazi play, "The Madman of Europe."

Henreid had been a fervent anti-Nazi since a Jewish comedian friend had told him years earlier that he was no longer allowed to perform. Later, Henreid helped the comic escape from Berlin.

For that and other anti-Nazi actions, Henreid was designated "official enemy of the Third Reich" and all his assets were seized.

He had made one film in Austria, "Jersey Lilly" in 1935, and then three in England, "Goodbye Mr. movie, "Joan of Paris," which established him as a worthy rival of such other European matinee idols as Charles Boyer.

In "Voyager," Davis played a dowdy spinster encouraged to seek love by her psychiatrist. Henreid was the object of that doomed affair and the knowing glance he gave her as he offered that second cigarette was fixed on the hearts and minds of audiences across the land Marlboro Cigarettes.

Then came "Casablanca." In a memorable scene, Henreid draws himself up to his full 6 feet, 3 inches and stands defiantly in Bogart's saloon where sin and cynicism run rampant and where a group of German soldiers are singing Tobacco Store. He whips a crowd of French exiles into a stirring rendition of "La Marseillaise" and stills the boisterous Germans.

Bogart got an Academy Award nomination but Henreid got Miss Bergman in one of the screen's most poignant and clever climaxes.

Both actor and director Marlboro Cigarettes, Henreid's other credits included "Night Train," "Devotion," "In Our Time," "Between Two Worlds," "Of Human Bondage," "Rope of Sand" and "Last of the Buccaneers."
