Pass The Butter!


I don’t know about the rest of you, but hearing this news makes me feel really old.

‘Last Tango in Paris’ Star Maria Schneider Dies


Maria Schneider, the French actress whose sex scenes with Marlon Brando in“Last Tango in Paris” set a new standard for explicitness onscreen, died on Thursday in Paris. She was 58.

A spokesman for her agency, Act 1, said that she had died after a long illness but provided no other details.

The baby-faced Ms. Schneider was only 19 when the Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci chose her above a hundred other actresses for the role of the free-spirited, mysterious Jeanne in “Last Tango” because, he once said, she seemed “like a Lolita, but more perverse.”


So here’s my question for you:  If this film was released today, do you think it still would’ve gotten an X-Rating?  Place your comment below …
