First Tangos in Rome

March 06, 1994

As a Brando biographer ("Marlon Brando," Doubleday, 1987), I take exception to Maria Schneider's statement that she is "quite proud to be the only European actress to play opposite Marlon Brando" (Film Clips, Feb. 20).

By the time Brando appeared with Schneider in "Last Tango in Paris" in 1972, he had co-starred with Anna Magnani in "The Fugitive Kind" (1960) and with Sophia Loren in "A Countess From Hong Kong" (1967).

Perhaps Schneider doesn't consider Italy to be part of Europe.
