A BRANDO CO-STAR DEAD AT 58

maria s.        

Maria Schneider (Above), the French actress who was Marlon Brando’s young co-star in the steamy 1972 film "Last Tango in Paris," has died, her talent agency said. She was 58.

A representative of the Act 1 agency said Schneider died in Paris on Thursday "following a long illness," but declined to provide details.

Schneider was 19 when she starred opposite Marlon Brando in Bernardo Bertolucci’s racy "Last Tango in Paris." In it, she played a young Parisian woman who takes up with a middle-aged American businessman, played by Brando.

Throughout her career, Schneider appeared in more than two dozen films, most of them French. (AP)

Malone’s film career began in the mid 1940s, and in her early years she played small roles, mainly in B-movies. After a decade in films, she became more popular as a
glamor image, particularly after her performance in Written on the Wind (1956),
which won her the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Her film career
peaked by the beginning of the 1960s, and she achieved later success with her
television role as Constance MacKenzie on Peyton Place on ABC-TV from 1964
to 1968. Less active in her later years, Malone returned to film in 1992 as Hazel
