Charming Photos of Yvonne Arnaud in the 1910s

Born 1890 in Bordeaux, Gironde, French pianist, singer and actress Yvonne Arnaud was well known for her career in Britain, as well as her native land.

After beginning a career as a concert pianist as a child, Arnaud acted in musical comedies. She switched to non-musical comedy and drama around 1920 and was one of the players in the second of the Aldwych farces, A Cuckoo in the Nest, a hit in 1925.

Arnaud also had dramatic roles and made films in the 1930s and 1940s, and continued to act into the 1950s. She occasionally performed as a pianist later in her career. The Yvonne Arnaud Theatre was named in her memory in Guildford, Surrey.

Arnaud died in 1958 in Guildford, Surrey, England, aged 67.
