Romy Schneider

Here is a lovely song, sung in German by the beautiful actress (and on occasion singer) Romy Schneider, coming from the movie "Monpti" (1957).
Romy Schneider (1938 - 1982) was an Austrian actress. She was born Rosemarie Magdalena Albach-Retty in Vienna into a family of actors. After her divorce in 1945, her mother, Magda Schneider, took care of Romy and eventually also supervised her career, often appearing alongside her daughter, who had made her film debut already in 1953, aged 15. Fed up with the saccharine image her first movies (especially "Sissi") had bestowed upon her, Schneider leapt at the chance of starring in the much more sombre "Christine" (1958), a remake of Max Ophüls's 1933 film "Liebelei" (which itself is based upon a play by Arthur Schnitzler). It was during the filming of "Christine" that she fell in love with French actor Alain Delon, who co-starred in the movie. Schneider became engaged to him in 1959, and the couple moved to Paris. This meant the beginning of her international film career, which also brought her to Hollywood ("Good Neighbor Sam", a 1964 comedy with Jack Lemmon, and the 1965 movie "What's New, Pussycat" with Woody Allen). Mainly, however, she stayed in France, working with film directors such as Orson Welles ("Le Procès" of 1963, based upon Franz Kafka's "The Trial") and Luchino Visconti ("Ludwig", a 1972 film about the life of King Ludwig II of Bavaria in which she played a much maturer Elisabeth of Austria again). She appeared also in the famous Italian film of 1962, "Boccaccio 70", by Federico Fellini, Vittorio de Sica, Luchino Visconti and Mario Monicelli, with Sophia Loren and Anita Ekberg. She has made numerous fims with the greatest directors and, even if her personal life was somehow turbulent and tragic, she remains one of the most gifted and beautiful actresses France (and the world) has ever known.
Enjoy Romy's great beauty!
