Notes:
Maximilian Schell, the Swiss/Austrian actor, director, and writer, was born December 8, 1930 in Vienna, Austria, the son of poet and playwright Ferdinand Hermann Schell and actress Margarethe Noe. His older sister is the actress Maria Schell (born in 1926). He was educated at the University of Zurich (majoring in art history) and the University of Munich. Schell's first major motion picture in English was "The Young Lions" (1958), opposite Marlon Brando and Montgomery Clift. He was nominated again for the Best Actor Academy Award for his role in the film version of Robert Shaw's play "The Man in the Glass Booth" (1974), and a film he directed, "The Pedestrian" was nominated for Best Foreign Film the same year. His role in the film "Julia" (1977) won him a Best Supporting Actor nomination, and his documentary on Marlene Dietrich "Marlene," that he produced in 1984, won worldwide critical acclaim.
