Magda may be best known in some circles as the mother of actress Romy Schneider, but to us it's her own career that's more interesting. She did theatre in Munich and Augsburg in the 1920s, then went on to a successful film career making over 40 movies during the 30s, 40s and 50s.
According to her daughter, from their house they could see Hitler's holiday domicile, Obersalzberg, where the Fuhrer often received them, later declaring Magda to be his favourite actress. Romy would later claim her mother and Hitler had had an affair. After her death in 1996, she was buried in Berchtesgaden.
