ROMY SCHNEIDER, THE ACTRESS, DIES IN PARIS APARTMENT AT 43. AP. Published: May 30, 1982. “The actress Romy Schneider was found dead today in the Paris apartment where she lived. She was 43 years old. Authorities said the Austrian-born actress had died of natural causes. “Apparently she suffered some kind of cardiac arrest,” said a representative of the Public Prosecutor. The police said initial reports were wrong that had said Miss Schneider might have committed suicide because of her reported despondence over the accidental death last July of her 14-year-old son, David Christopher Haubenstock. Miss Schneider made more than 60 films during her career, which spanned nearly 30 years. Her films generally enjoyed more acclaim in Europe, where most of them were made, than in the United States. In her last film, Jacques Rouffio’s ”La Passante du Sans-Souci,” which was just released in Paris, she played a mother whose son dies. The film is dedicated to Miss Schneider’s son.
