German actress, internationally known, having made her screen debut at the age of 14. A member of a theatrical family, her grandmother had been an actress in Viennese theater and her mom, Magda, a famous stage and screen star.

At the age of 19, she starred in the German film, "The Story Of Vicki.. " She became the darling of the German box office, often cast in sugary, cute and coy roles. In 1960, she refused to accept any roles that were not of substance and as a result, landed a role in "Bocaccio 70," for which she was awarded the Crystal Star of French Academie as Best Foreign Actress in 1963. The same year she had her U.S. debut in the comedy, "Good Neighbor Sam."

She had been married to stage director Harry Meyer who hanged himself in his Hamburg apartment. Two and a half years later she lost her only son when he fell out the window of her Paris home, landing on sharp iron bars on 5 July 1981. Her companion of eight years was actor, Alain Delon.

The circumstances of her death in her Paris apartment on 29 May 1982 were unclear. Apparently she died of a heart attack between the hours of 4 and 6 am, but tranquilizers and booze were found in her system, leaving the question of a possible suicide or overdose.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes "Romy und ihre Familie" by Jürgen Trimborn (Droemer Knaur, 2008), p. 17: "Am Abend des 23. September, kurz nach zweiundzwanzig Uhr, ist es dann soweit. Magda Schneider bringt im Rudolfinerhaus, dem berühmtesten Krankenhaus Wiens, ihr erstes Kind zur Welt. Den Strapazen der schweren Geburt folgt die Erleichterung, eine kerngesunde Tochter zur Welt gebracht zu haben."

Translation: On the evening of 23 September, at twenty-two o'clock, the time had come for Magda Schneider to bring their first child into the world at Rudolfinerhaus, the most famous hospital in Vienna. After the rigors of birth came the relief of a perfectly healthy daughter.

Scholfield also quotes 9:45pm from "Romy Schneider. Sie wollte nicht ewig "Sissi" sein" by Ernst Probst (GRIN, 2012), p. 7: "Rosemarie Magdalena Albach erblickte am 23. September 1938 um 21.45 Uhr."

Previously this entry had 9:45pm rated C: Reynolds quotes Ebertin. Paul Teixeira quotes Reinhold for 9:45 PM "the exact time of her birth is known," but without any source for the alledged "known." Hans Taeger quotes Tony Bonin for 10:05 PM. To an inquiry, Taeger replied that source not known.
