Maria Schneider, the French actress who appeared opposite Marlon Brando in "Last Tango in Paris," the 1972 movie whose strong sexual content stirred international controversy, has died. She was 58. Schneider died in Paris on Thursday after a long illness, her family told Agence France Presse. She was a voluptuous, 19-year-old newcomer with long, curly brown hair framing a youthful face when she was cast in writer-director Bernardo Bertolucci's "Last Tango in Paris," in which she played a young engaged Parisian woman looking for an apartment to rent.
