Synopsis

Sissi
Romy Schneider makes an impressive starring debut in the delightful Austrian comedy Sissi. The titular heroine is a preteen 19th century lass of noble birth, who charms everyone she meets. Especially impressed is young Franz Joseph, emperor the Hapsburg Empire. When Sissi comes of age, the emperor pursues the girl romantically, with fascinating results. Filmed in 1955, Sissi was the first of a popular series of films showcasing Romy Schneider as the young Empress Elizabeth. The actress' mother, Magda Schneider, also appears prominently in the proceedings. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Sissi, Die Junge Kaiserin
Trouble rears its ugly head when the young emperor and empress of Austria arrive in Budapest for their coronation. ~ Nickie ?, Rovi

Forever My Love
The trilogy on Franz Josef, Emperor of Austria and his queen Empress Elizabeth by director Ernest Marischka has been cut and spliced to make this interesting though slow-paced, two and a half-hour compilation costume drama. The tale starts out with the courtship of the future queen, known as "Sissi" (Romy Schneider, who made her screen debut in the first of the three dramas), an attractive and lively young woman. After Franz Josef (Karl Boehm) falls in loves and captures Sissi's heart, they plan their wedding and head into the topic of the second feature in the series, the coronation of Franz Josef in Budapest. Finally, Sissi is shown as being instrumental in helping to keep the peace -- or obtain it -- among the belligerent nations of Europe. The original titles of each of the three separate dramas were Sissi, Sissi, die Junge Kaiserin, and Sissi, Schicksalsjahre Einer Kaiserin. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Mädchenjahre Einer Koenigin
Filmed in 1954 as Madchenjahre einer Konigin, The Story of Vickie stars 16-year-old Romy Schneider as England's soon-to-be Queen Victoria. Purportedly based on the Queen's diary and letters, the story concerns the early romance between "Vickie" and her beloved Prince Albert (Adrian Hoven). When first she meets Albert, Vickie has no idea that he is her betrothed, thus she delights in embarking upon a "forbidden" love affair. Enlivening the film is the young princess' frisky unwillingness to conform to Royal protocol--until it becomes utterly necessary for her to do so. Those who question the casting of an Austrian actress as Victoria should be reminded that the real Queen was also of Teutonic heritage. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
