At the beginning of her career Romy Schneider, often called the Austrian Shirley Temple, starred in a series of successful comedies about young Austro-Hungarian Empress Elizabeth, better known as Sissi.

Then international productions followed: Luchino Visconti's Boccacio 70 (1962), Orson Welles' The Trial (1963).

After playing a prostitute in the big-budget war film The Victors (1963), Romy began her unrewarding Hollywood career. Settling in France in the 1960s, Romy became one of that country's most respected actresses, winning Cesar awards for her performances in L'Important C'est d'Aimer (1975) and L'Histoire Simple (1978).

In her last years, she was beset by several personal tragedies, including the accidental death of her 14-year-old son. She was on the road to emotional and professional recovery when, in May of 1982, Romy Schneider was found dead in her Paris apartment.
