While certainly proud of being
Jewish, Winters wasn't very observant.
So, it's interesting that her daughter,
whose father was
Italian Catholic
actor Vittorio
Gassman, appar-
ently found her
own way to being
a devout Jew.
Meanwhile, the
Angeles Times
Shelley Winters
had a wonderful
story on Randol
Schoenberg, 39, the lawyer who won
the case that secured the ownership
rights of Maria Altmann, 89, to
Gustav Klimt paintings valued at $250
million. Altmann's Viennese Jewish
uncle, a highly cultured patron of the

He is very familiar with the great
Viennese Jewish cultural flowering
that the Nazis, with plenty of Austrian
help, destroyed.
Schoenberg took the case despite
the fact he had just gone into practice
for himself, other lawyers said it was
almost hopeless, and he would not get
paid unless Altmann won.
The California lawyer won a U.S.
Supreme Court decision that led to
the Austrians offering a quick, impar-
tial arbitration in Austria to end the
case. Schoenberg took a chance
accepting the arbitration, but he knew
the law and facts were on his side and
this was the only way for Altmann to
get justice before she died.
