Romy Schneider’s 80th Birthday (* September 23, 1938)

The actress Romy Schneider was already a legend during her lifetime. Her allure remains unabated: there are her beauty, her passionate and intense style of acting, as well as her personal instability and inner turmoil.

Born Rosemarie Magdalene Albach in 1938 into an Austrian dynasty of actors she debuts in front of the camera at the tender age of 15. Her role as Empress Elizabeth of Austria 2 years later leads to overnight fame. Soon enough Romy Schneider is fed up with Sissi and all the other cheesy films. She starts a tumultuous affair with Alain Delon and follows him to Paris in the late 1950s, in an attempt to get rid of the image of the “sweet girl” and to make a radical new beginning.

She starts working with prestigious directors such as Luchino Visconti, Orson Welles, Claude Sautet and Andrzej Żuławski, alongside fellow actors such as Michel Piccoli and Jean Paul Belmondo, Jack Lemmon and Marcello Mastroianni.  Her performance in films like “The Cardinal”, “The Swimming Pool”, “That Most Important Thing: Love” or “A Simple Story” make her one of the most distinguished actresses of the 1960s and 1970s.

But while the French audience and critics adore and revere her as “Romy, la Grande” the German press insults her as a “traitor to the fatherland” and a “bimbo of the French”.  

From the beginning of her teenage stardom Romy Schneider has an ambivalent relationship with particularly the German press. Stubborn about forgiving her consequent emancipation the German press feasts on her sorrows. Her personal life is riddled with countless plights and strokes of fate — from her failed romantic relationships to money problems, depression, addiction to alcohol and pills, to the suicide of her ex-husband and the accidental death of her son. She passes away on May 29, 1982, aged just 43. As rumour has it she died of a “broken heart”. The last of her altogether 60 films “La Passante de Sans-Souci” has been released to the big screen just a few weeks prior.
