German postcard by Krüger, no. 902/192. Photo: Bernard of Hollywood.
Film and TV actress Barbara Valentin (1940 - 2002) was dubbed the 'German Jayne Mansfield' and a 'Scandal Magnet'. Her résumé includes sex films but also art films directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Her private life was fodder for the tabloids. Pop star Freddie Mercury was ‘the love of her life’.
