Italian-born French actor and singer, Yves Montand, (real name Ivo Livi, born 13 October 1921 – died 9 November 1991) was the youngest of three children. His father was a militant communist who fled to Marseilles to avoid persecution from the fascist regime. The showbiz name came from a recollection of how his mother used to call him when he was a boy “Ivo Monta!”
More successful as a singer than an actor in his early years, Montand’s acting career peaked in the 1960s, but by the late 1970s he appeared in fewer and fewer high-profile films. A notable exception was Claude Berri’s popular two-part film Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources made in 1986.
In 1949, Montand met up-and coming actress Simone Signoret. The two set up home together in 1950 and were married up until Signorets’s death in 1985.
