Nadja Tiller in Das Mädchen Rosemarie 1958

The story, based on real-life events, was first filmed by Rolf Thiele in 1958 (released in the U.S. as “Rosemary”), with Nadja Tiller as the Frankfurt femme whose love of fast cars and money led her to bed the great and the good before being murdered in 1957 in her apartment by a never-found assailant. Thiele’s hit B&W movie, made when the real subject’s body was still almost warm, had a socially satirical edge. Variety
