Beauty Icon: Romy Schneider

Schneider soon hightailed it to Paris, where meatier scripts awaited her. In 1958, she played the title role in Christine, a remake of the 1933 film Liebelei, based on the Arthur Schnitzler play that originally starred her mother-turned-manager, Magda Schneider. It was on the set of Christine that Schneider met Alain Delon.
