One Day Event: Germany (ads including German born actors) ... one day late. I apologize.

Christine Kaufmann was born in Nazi-annexed Austria in 1945 and portrayed a wide range of roles, including Aunt Polly in a production of Tom Sawyer. The two movies I recall most were The Last Days of Pompeii (1959) where she starred with Steve Reeves (yum!) and Taras Bulba (1962) where her co-star was Tony Curtis, whom she married. The directors Fassbinder and Dietl used her a lot, too, and she was known as "the most beautiful grandmother in Germany." She started a cosmetics line and wrote books about health and beauty, a very busy lady.
