Biography

Vienna, Austria
Maximilian Schell was the most successful German-speaking actor in English-language films since Emil Jannings, the winner of the first Best Actor Academy Award. Like Jannings, Schell won the Oscar, but unlike him, he was a dedicated anti-Nazi.

Schell was born in Vienna, Austria on December 8, 1930, but raised in in Zurich, Switzerland. Read more...
