The Austrian-born beauty made a big splash in Hollywood during the 1960s and ’70s, when producers, directors and actors stumbled over each other to have her in their movies. She appeared alongside Charlton Heston in Major Dundee, with James Coburn in Cross of Iron and with Kirk Douglas in Cast a Giant Shadow. After the spotlight dimmed in America, she returned to Europe and starred in various theatrical and television productions. Today, at 66, she’s president of the German Film Academy, that country’s equivalent of America’s Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
