Austrian actress Nadja Tiller was born into a modestly famous theatrical family. Starting out as a model, Tiller won the Miss Austria contest, which turned out to be her ticket into filmmaking. American audiences of the early '50s had a preconception that European actresses were somehow more sensuous and erotic than their Hollywood counterparts, and Nadja did her best to confirm this assumption. With titles like Portrait of a Sinner (1961) and And So to Bed (1965) to her credit, Ms. Tiller became a favorite of the "art house" crowd. Seldom seen in English-language productions, Nadja did appear briefly in the United Nations-produced all star bomb The Poppy is Also a Flower (1965), a film so bad that it's hard to believe it was based on an Ian Fleming story. Nadja Tiller's last film to date was the Italian-French-German The Babysitter (1975), where she took a back seat to latter-day sex star Romy Schneider - just as well, considering how tiresome The Babysitter turned out to be.
