#art/#history: if i were the superstitious sort, i'd be convinced that the life of this austrian actress was ill-fated from its start. at the age of 15, the camera found her exceptionally pleasing face & made her a star. by 20, she'd gone to france & fallen in love with her 'christine' co-star, alain delon. five years later, he broke her heart...but she stayed put & worked with luminaries like orson welles, claude chabrol & bertrand tavernier. following the death of her teenaged son in 1981, romy schneider began hitting the coping bottle heavily. she died #otd in 1982 of cardiac arrest. here comes that superstition creeping back. i think she gave up.
