Ivo Livi (Italian pronunciation: [ivo ˈlivi]), better known as Yves Montand (French: [iv mɔ̃tɑ̃]; 13 October 1921 – 9 November 1991), was an Italian-French actor and singer. He was best known for his roles in Jean de Florette (1986) and Manon des Sources (1986).

Montand died of a heart attack on 9 November 1991 in Senlis, France at the age of 70.

In 2004, Catherine Allegret, Signoret's daughter, said in her autobiography "Un Monde a L'envers" (A World Upside Down), that she had been sexually abused by Montand at the age of five.[1]
