Did You Know?

Although he played her husband in this trilogy, Karlheinz Böhm is only 10 years older than Romy Schneider.See more »
Anachronisms: Colonel Böckl is watching Sissi climbing out of a window of her bedroom where she has been locked just before by her mother and now wants to get and and go fishing. Böckl is hiding behind a bush and several scenes show him with the town in the background. In one scene for a very short moment you can clearly see a car passing by far between two houses.See more »

Romy Schneider in her own fairy tale, 9 November 1999
Author: Liedzeit from Germany

A very young and innocent girl marries the powerful ruler of the most powerful empire on earth. Why? Because she loves him dearly. If that is not sweet. And it is also not far from the truth. Of course it helps that she was a little princess - only of Bavaria but of royal blood (I think). Of course everybody loved her - well, she got killed by someone eventually, but that is not in the film and it does not prove anything anyway. If you know Romy Schneider only from her later (mostly French) films do not even try to imagine how beautiful and charming, well sweet she was. She made two sequels. All three films will be valued as the highest art in the million years to come by anyone who can enjoy a fairy tale.
