She broke her hip in a helicopter crash in Africa at the age of 93. She took up scuba diving in her 80's or 90's (I forget). She was roundly jeered when she accepted a lifetime achievement award in 1997. She's being investigated by the German government right now (just after her August 22nd birthday) for denying the Holocaust -- not that she does, just that there's a Gypsy organization accusing her of it.
The poor woman revolutionized cinema, did what were some of the best movies ever made at the time, invented a surprising number of filming and editing techniques now taken for granted, and she just can't buy a break. I hope that "Impressionen unter Wasser", her latest film, is released in some form in the US. I want to buy a copy just to support her, on principle. She deserves it.
