in 1969 she met rainer langhans, one of the key activists in the german left wing student movement. uschi and rainer moved in with the notorious kommune eins in berlin, they talked freely about their love and relationship and were often interviewed by the media. both became symbols of the so called sexual revolution in europe throughout the 1960s. as opposed to rainer, uschi did not take part in the political activities of the kommune eins, but, for most germans, became the " beautiful face of student revolution" (stern magazine).

uschi was one of the first groupies in europe, and definitely the most glamorous one. she starred in a couple of films, became germany's best paid fashion model throughout the 1970s, and had affairs with mick jagger, keith richards, and jimi hendrix.

in 1973, uschi fell in love with the love of her life: rich, macho, and super eccentric dieter bockhorn, the owner of a nightclub in hamburg's red-light district. they traveled the world in a customized bus. in 1984, bockhorn died in a motorcycle accident in mexico.

today, uschi lives in topanga canyon, los angeles, and works as a jewellery designer. imho, she is the most gorgeous 60 year old the world ever knew!
Thank you! I know so little about her. I actually thought that Dieter Bockhorn and Rainer Langhans were one and the same.

thanks, susansuperstar! me too. the sweater plus scarf thing she's got going in pic #2 inspires me a lot lately!

60swildchild, you're welcome! rainer langhans was more of a softie guy (and not so very innovative at lovemaking, or so uschi told german bild zeitung in september 2006), whereas bockhorn must have been quite the man. i'm dying to see the movie!!!

Thanks karina! It's amazing how many photos one can acquire from ebay. It's somewhat time consuming but every once-in-a-while that jewel rises to the surface.

I got the German magazine Park Avenue today (the closest thing to Vanity Fair we have in Germany, but VF starts a German edition next month), february issue, and Uschi's on the cover with Natalia Avignon, promoting the movie, so I took some pictures for Uschi's fans here:

Thank you SO much, it's REALLY appriciated, really!

She looks not much older than Natalia! Just her eyes look wiser, have that age old wisdom, that's about the main giveaway!!! She's got such presence, such presence, something magic, unreal and special.

It must be amazing to work on a film about someone and have such great support from them, especially if you're playing them! That must be wonderful!

Thanks again!!!!!

Oh and that last picture with all those smaller ones of Uschi...****in heaven sent!!!!! What a life, what a soul, what a spirit that woman has!!!!! AMAZING! Thanks!
