The height of happiness? “Love. Completely. A lifetimeRomy Schneider replied, as reported in the France 3 documentary, Romy, free woman, which will be broadcast this Friday, May 20. If she loved, she was often not loved. This was the case of her first husband, Harry Meyer, known shortly after her painful separation from Alain Delon. She is in the spring of 1965, in Berlin, that their paths crossed. The German playwright is forty years old. Fourteen more than Romy Schneider. Above all, he reveres the theater and has nothing but contempt for the cinema. So much so that he does not stop doing many derogatory comments to his wife. The one who came to pay for his divorce so they could live their romance. The one who made him father.
During their marriage, Romy Schneider was effectively five months pregnant. Her little David showed the tip of his nose on December 3, 1966. But soon her partner wavered. “Harry’s misogynistic contempt has become unbearable“, says the documentary. Harry Meyen does not hesitate to belittle his wife, in public, during an interview.

They both want custody of their only child. Harry Meyen only grants it to him on one condition: to recover half of the star’s fortune in return. “To gain custody of David, he does not hesitate to sell Harry Meyen six million francs, or more than four million euros. Unheard of for the time!“, explains the documentary. And to overcome: “We are in the mid 70’s and once again she reverses the roles being she who pays. Always a detachment from the money that is for her only a way to buy her peace of mind.” “Actually, I was ahead of my time.“, analyzes Romy Schneider, before assuring: “At a time when there was no talk of women’s liberation, I undertook my own liberation. I forged my own destiny and I don’t regret it“. A feminist ahead of her time.
