Margherita Horowitz

Margherita Horowitz from the Annuario degli attori 1977

Margherita Horowitz.jpg

And now finally: a topic for Margherita Horowitz, the great Austrian actress who played supporting roles (many uncredited) in countless Italian films!

Margherita was born in Austria on 9 August 1919. Her birth name was Margarete Horowitz and her mother was Jewish. She started her career as an actress very early, and was only 14 years old when she was discovered and started to play small theater roles in Vienna.

But the growing anti-semitism in Europe in the late 1930s put an end to Margarete's career, and she couldn't get any more work because she was half-Jewish. Desperate for work, the now 18-year-old Margarete heard about opportunities for young singers and dancers in Italy, and decided to go to an audition. The tall, blonde and attractive Margarete impressed on her audition and was given a six-month contract to work on the stage at the Teatro Valle in Rome.

In Rome, she met Renato Trentini, a handsome Italian fascist officer, and the two fell in love with each other. Margarete and Renato quickly got married, and Margarete now changed her name to Margherita Trentini and converted to Roman Catholocism. But the happiness was short-lived because soon World War 2 broke out. Renato started to work as a liaison with the German army. Because of the German occupation of Italy, there was desperate need for translators and a German major offered Margherita a translator job. Terrified that the Nazis would discover that she was half-Jewish, Margherita was too afraid to say no, and she worked with organizing theater performances for the Nazis and translaing their documents and conversations.

Fortunately, the Germans never discovered the truth about Margherita's Jewish heritage and when the war ended in 1945 she could finally feel safe. She divorced Renato, took back her maiden name Horowitz and started to act in the theater again. She also worked as a model, and also started to appear in small movie roles, and can be spotted in many 'generica' parts in the from the 1950s and early 1960s. In the mid 1960s she began to gain more substantial supporting roles, and was a prolific character actress in many, many films, including many credited roles.

In the early 1990s, Margherita retired from acting and then lived quietly outside the limelight, although in 2003 she was interviewed in the Associated Press about her experiences during the war. She died on 19 December 2011 in Vienna, Austria.

This bio for Margherita was made with info found in the aforementioned interview and supplemented by some additional informations supplied here in the forum by Tibor Róbert Szücs in 2014.

Let's begin with a look at some of Margherita's best known film roles from the 1960s and 70s.

I criminali della galassia (1966) - small but credited role as Enzo Fiermonte's wife
Criminali Galassia - Horowitz.jpg

Quite a nice role for her as Jean-Louis Trintignant's secretary in La morte ha fatto l'uovo (1968)
Morte Fatto - Horowitz.jpg

Il gatto a nove code (1971) - short uncredited role as the baby-sitter
Gatto Nove Code - Horowitz.jpg

Anche gli angeli mangiano fagioli (1973) - thanks to TRS for the pic
anche_angeli_horowitz.jpg

Briefly seen as a journalist in Anno Uno (1974) - uncredited
Anno Uno - Horowitz.jpg

Very notable appearance for her as Teresa Ann Savoy's fascist mother in Salon Kitty (1975) - really interesting role for Margherita considering her background
Salon Kitty - Horowitz.jpg

Uncredited (and with a bad wig) as one of the guests at Umberto D'Orsi's house in Fantozzi (1975)
Fantozzi - Horowitz.jpg

And let's not forget her very memorable role as the hostage in Uomini si nasce, poliziotti si muore (1976). I was very impressed with her work in this film as she really gets roughed up by Franco Citti
Uomini Si Nasce - Horowitz.jpg

Margherita is an employee at the bank in Milano violenta (1976)
Milano Violenta - Horowitz1.jpg

And again she gets taken as a hostage

Uncredited again as a woman at the casino in Quelli della calibro 38 (1976)
Calibro 38 - Horowitz.jpg

Also memorable as the desperate mother of a drug-addicted girl in La via della droga (1977)
Via Della Droga - Horowitz.jpg

Comical part for Margherita in the sex comedy Casanova & Co. (1977) - the really surprising thing here is that she is credited as Margherita Trentini - the surname of her ex-husband!
Casanova & Co - Horowitz.jpg

She is visible in a few scenes as one of the teachers in the cult horror movie Suspiria (1977)
Suspiria - Horowitz1.jpg
Suspiria - Horowitz2.jpg

Short uncredited role as a woman at the spa in the TV mini series L'isola del gabbiano (1981)
Isola Del Gabbiano - Horowitz.jpg

Uncredited role in The Salamander (1981), where she is the wife of the Minister of Defence (played by Andrea Esterhazy)

Uncredited as one of the wedding guests I due carabinieri (1984)

Uncredited again as one of the Jewish people hiding from the Nazis in The Assisi Underground (1985)

Margherita as a nun in Saving Grace (1985)

Margherita's earliest known credited roles are from 1966, but prior to that she appeared numerous times in little uncredited roles (often without dialogue).

So far, the earliest known role for Margherita is in I pappagalli (1955) as a woman at the concert - identification by Ghibarian
Pappagalli - Horowitz + Lecchini.jpg

Another early appearance is as a nurse in A Farewell to Arms (1957), a Hollywood romance shot in Italy - identification and pics by Chickadee

On the IMDb it says that Margherita's scenes in OK Connery (1967) were deleted but this is not true. She does appear in the film even though her role is very small. She is a princess who makes some very high bids at an auction but in the end Adolfo Celi wins the bidding.

Another tourist role, though a much raunchier one - here's Margherita as one of the old tourist ladies who take pictures of the naked Leopoldo Trieste in Lezioni private (1975)

Okay, Margherita's topic is now restored and I've added back pictures whereever I've been able to. And now it's time for some more roles as I've taken the time to get pictures from several known roles we never had any pics of, plus I've discovered a few new ones.

Let's start with Margherita's small but credited and important role in La svastica nel ventre (1977) as the mother of Hanna (Sirpa Lane)
Svastica Nel Ventre - Horowitz.jpg

The other roles are quite minor, starting with an uncredited part as a party guest in 3 notti d'amore (1964) in the segment "La moglie bambina"
3 Notti D'Amore - Horowitz.jpg

Margherita can be glimpsed briefly in the giallo Sette scialli di seta gialla (1972) as a woman working at the fashion studio (uncredited of course)
Sette Scialli - Horowitz.jpg

She also has a credited but microscopic role in Visconti's Gruppo di famiglia in un interno (1974)
Gruppo Di Famiglia - Horowitz1.jpg
Gruppo Di Famiglia - Horowitz2.jpg
According to the IMDb, she plays a maid but this is wrong! She only appears in the flashback scene featuring Dominique Sanda as the mother of professor, but I don't know what she's supposed to be. Sanda's mother? Or friend? Relative? I don't know...


She's also credited in Visconti's L'innocente (1976) and has a slightly bigger role this time as a gossiping party guest
L'Innocente - Horowitz.jpg

Also credited in another famous film: La cage aux folles a.k.a. Il vizietto (1978) as a secretary
Cage Aux Folles - Horowitz.jpg

Margherita really worked with a lot of the important directors. Here uncredited in Bertolucci's La luna (1979) as one the many admirers of Jill Clayburgh
