Born Today in 1930: Maximilian Schell


Today is the birthday of one of my favorite actors.  Maximilian Schell became famous after winning the Oscar for best actor for Judgement at Nuremburg (1961) and was also nominated for his role in the film Julia (1977), going on to win and be nominated for many other awards.  He was also in the adventure romp Krakatowa: East of Java (1969), which I remember fondly from my childhood.  However, most fondly, (and the first film I ever saw him) I recall Schell as the mad Dr. Reinhardt in Disney's The Black Hole (1979).
