Description
Maximilian Schell (8 December 1930 – 1 February 2014) was a Swiss film and stage actor, who also wrote, directed and produced some of his own films. He won the Academy Award for Best Actor for the 1961 American film Judgment at Nuremberg, his second acting role in Hollywood. Born in Austria, his parents were involved in the arts and he grew up surrounded by acting and literature. While he was a child, his family fled to Switzerland in 1938 when Austria was annexed by Nazi Germany, and they settled in Zurich. After World War II ended, Schell took up acting or directing full-time. He appeared in numerous German films, often anti-war, before moving on to Hollywood.



Maximilian Schell died on 1 February 2014 at the age of 83 years during an operation at the back in the country hospital Innsbruck. He no longer awoke from anesthesia. He was buried near his sister Maria Shell at the Preitenegg Cemetery in Carinthia, Austria
