Rare vintage 3.5 x 5.25-inch black and white German postcard portrait, boldly signed in blue fountain pen in the late 1950s or early 1960s. In good condition. Acclaimed Austrian-born beauty Romy Schneider was memorable in Sissi (1955), Sissi: The Young Empress (1956), The Trial (1962), and That Most Important Thing: Love (1975). She also made a number of contributions to the horror, sci-fi and fantasy genres, including Boccaccio '70 (1962), The Trial (1962), Le Trio Inferno (1971), Death Watch (1980), and Fantasma d'Amore (1981). In 1982, despondent over the accidental death of her son, she committed suicide by an overdose of sleeping pills, aged only 43 years.
