Biography of Karin Schubert

Karin Schubert, a German film actress, began her career in the late 1960s. She gained recognition for her roles in Italian action films and westerns such as "Morbosamente vostra," where she portrayed Cora, a schizophrenic housewife with promiscuous fantasies. Schubert's most successful films included "The Power of Evil" by Gerard Oury, "Bluebeard" by Edward Dmytryk, "L'attentat" (released in the Soviet Union as "Kidnapping in Paris") by Yves Boisset, and "Tutti per uno... botte per tutti" by Bruno Corbucci, a spaghetti western based on the story of "The Three Musketeers" (also released as "Three Musketeers of the West").

Later, Schubert became a star in erotic comedies of the 1970s, with her most famous film being "Quel gran pezzo dell' Ubalda tutta nuda e tutta calda." Her innocent yet provocative appearance caught the attention of director Joe D'Amato, who introduced her to the erotic film industry. Some of Schubert's notable works in this genre include "Emanuelle nera," "La Dottoressa sotto il lenzuolo," and "Emanuelle - perché violenza alle donne?"

In 1985, due to financial difficulties related to her son's drug addiction and abuse towards her, Schubert transitioned into the adult film industry. She appeared in both adult films and magazines. However, she later expressed her disapproval of the path she had taken during an appearance on the talk show hosted by Maurizio Costanzo.

Schubert negotiated a lucrative contract for herself, which included an annual salary of 180,000 Deutsche Marks. She also demanded the exclusion of scenes involving bestiality and anal sex, as well as the requirement that her partners be exclusively white. She primarily starred in Italian adult films.

In 1990, Schubert starred in the German trilogy "Wiener Glut." By 1994, due to her age, she retired from the adult film industry after appearing in 24 films. She found work in a telephone sex service and also appeared in advertisements on certain private television stations in northern Italy.

On September 1st, overwhelmed by loneliness and poverty, Schubert attempted suicide by consuming barbiturates and half a bottle of vodka. Fortunately, her neighbors discovered her in time. In an interview in October of the same year, she revealed that she had been sexually abused by her father at the age of 11.

On May 20, 1996, Schubert made another suicide attempt, this time by inhaling carbon monoxide from a car. Once again, she was saved and remained in critical condition for several weeks.

Currently, Karin Schubert lives on her villa in Manciano, accompanied by her dogs.
