Maria Schneider R.I.P.

The word that Maria Schneider died Thursday in Paris at the age of 58 resonates with baby boomers. For them she was a pivotal sexual icon of their youth. In 1973, Schneider was the next big thing. The wildest of wild childs who embraced the sexual revolution with open arms. She was the female lead opposite Marlon Brando in Bernardo Bertolucci’s X-rated “Last Tango in Paris.” Schneider was so overtly sexual she made Brigitte Bardot look like a nun.
