Maria Schneider Dead At 58

French Actress, Maria Schneider, famous for her role in the 1972 Bernardo Bertolucci film, “The Last Tango in Paris” is dead at 58.

Schneider starred in “The Last Tango in Paris” with Marlon Brando before he became huge (in size). Although the AP reports that “The Last Tango in Paris” was banned in Italy for decades, I saw it in Naples, in Italian, in 1975.

“The Last Tango in Paris” was originally released as an X-rated film but according to Wikipedia re-rated NC-17 in 1997. Schneider made over 20 films but none gained her more notoriety than Last Tango.

Schneider, seen as a troubled actress, whose life finally did turn around later in life died after a lengthy fight with cancer.
