The exotic-looking daughter of silent star Don Alvarado, Joy Page is best remembered for playing newlywed Annina Brandel in Casablanca (1942). She came to the small but memorable role by way of nepotism, though, her mother, Ann Alvarado, having married studio boss Jack Warner. In the long run, the familial relationship with Warner Bros. became more of a hindrance than a help and Page's subsequent screen career proved decidedly anticlimactic and was mostly spent in programmers. In 1945, she married actor William Orr, who was created a producer almost overnight, a circumstance that occasioned the often quoted dig that "the son-in-law also rises." Orr was later put in charge of Warner Bros.' television division and Mrs. Orr starred opposite Leslie Nielsen in the first season of Walt Disney's Swamp Fox (1959), her final professional appearance. She was the mother of television writer-producer Gregory Orr.
