Good slide into the New Year 1957

561222 Bravo Cover (Guten Rutsch)

Horst Buchholz and Romy Schneider wish you a good slide into the New Year, as Elvis and Liselotte Pulver also feature on the cover of Bravo of 30 December 1956.

And so I wish you a good slide into the new decade, the 2020s.

German actress Romy Schneider as Austria’s 19th-century Empress Elizabeth, commonly known as Sisi, which was also the name of the massively popular film from 1955, albeit in the incorrect spelling, Sissi. Romy Schneider, a fine actress, died at the age of 43 half a year after this centrespread poster in Bravo of 22 December 1981 was published.

The real Sisi was assassinated in 1898 and reappeared 114 years later as Egypt’s military dictator.
