Reading and discussion with Thilo Wydra

A Love in Paris - Romy and Alain 
Reading and talk with Thilo Wydra & Dr. Reinhard Wittmann 
16 February, 8 pm

Romy Schneider grew up in the Berchtesgadener Land. Her brother attended the grammar school in Bad Reichenhall for a year and was accommodated in the then pupils' home in the Klosterhof. Romy visited him here. Reason enough to dedicate ourselves to this great actress.  
          Romy Schneider and Alain Delon were one of the most glamorous love couples of the 1960s. This extraordinary relationship was to last five years. They made three films together.

In love, engaged, but never married: Hollywood could not have invented a better love drama. "Sissi" and the French heartthrob - they were a dream couple straight out of a picture book. But Romy Schneider and Alain Delon's relationship unfortunately ended tragically.
